    Earlier this week, Sikh Americans marked another step forward for the next generation of the Khalsa by attending the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The Easter Egg Roll is the largest annual public event held at the White House and is a tradition dating back over a century, to 1878. This year marks the fourth year Sikh children were specifically invited to join in the festivities.

    The Sikh Coalition was honored to provide 30 tickets from the White House to Sikh children, their parents and their grandparents, who journeyed to our nation's capital from places around the country, including California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, and the DC area, to represent the community. There they participated in a range of activities: an egg roll, sports, storytelling, learning about healthy living, celebrity appearances and more.

    Both the Sikh Coalition and the Sikh community appreciated the White House and the Obama administration’s invitation to join the Easter festivities. The Sikh Coalition encourages community members to reach across to other faiths and continue fostering healthy dialogue in their own community.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
