"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?
