    UNITED SIKHS Announces Sikh Summit 2010 To Represent Community Concerns At Capitol Hill
    Join the Sikh Delegation and Voice Issues that Most Affect Sikhs in the United States Washington, D.C.: UNITED SIKHS is organizing the Sikh Summit 2010 from May 3rd to May 7th, 2010, where the participating members of the Sikh Delegation will meet with US Congressmen and Senators from different regions and share the concerns of the community with our lawmakers. Meetings will also be held with federal agencies to bring to notice the unique problems faced by the Sikh community in today’s day and age.



    The Sikh Summit is a way for Sikhs to unite and hold meaningful dialogue with government to promote solutions on important civil and human rights issues, such as Profiling, Hate and Bias Crimes, Articles of Faith, Xenophobia, the Census, Border and Watch list Concerns, Employment Discrimination, and Immigration Issues.

    This list is not exhaustive: Join the Sikh delegation and bring up issues that concern you and other members of your local sangat. What are some unique problems that Sikhs in your neighborhood face? UNITED SIKHS urges all community members and Gurdwara committees to organize talks within their community groups to assess what problems worry them the most, submit them, and join the Sikh delegation in DC to seek solutions to these important concerns.

    There is also the opportunity to represent your neighborhood at Capitol Hill, so please register so that we can seek a meeting with a representative from your region to discuss your interests and issues with the delegation. UNITED SIKHS will make all efforts to make sure that primarily issues of concern received from each region are accommodated in the Summit.

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!
