Successfully battling the world's largest institutions requires tremendous resources. Do your part to end discrimination against Sikhs today!

"[Captains Kalsi and Rattan] exemplify how it's possible to serve our country without compromising religious custom. We join the Sikh community in celebrating this significant achievement." - Council Speaker Quinn

Panthic victories like this are only possible with the financial backing of supporters like you. Please take 1 minute and give to an institution with a proven track record. Give today ?

"Captain Tejdeep Singh Rattan has made not only Sikhs proud but all Americans. I call upon our leaders in Washington to change the policy permanently and allow all qualified Americans to fight to protect our bedrock principles of equality and freedom of religion." - Council Member Dromm

While the Coalition is proud of the accomplishments of Captains Kalsi and Rattan, our work is still not over. Like the U.S. Army, many employers still require us to check our faith at the door. When times are difficult, we will not back down. When our faith is challenged, we will rise up. How will you support the effort to permanently end discrimination against Sikhs?

Donate today to an institution that will never shy away from the fight to secure our right to be Sikh:

This shabad uses the word ਜੀਉ frequently, it is written as if Guru Ram Das is talking to a friend...
