After the hearing, California Sikhs pose together on the steps of the State Legislature in Sacramento.

Yesterday, 17 members of the California Sikh community spoke before the California State Assembly’s Public Safety Committee to urge it’s members to pass AB 504 – the Kirpan Education Bill for California law enforcement officers. The Sikhs traveled to Sacramento from across the state – from Southern California, the Central Valley, the Bay Area, and parts of Northern California. As a result of their efforts, the bill passed through the Public Safety Committee with a unanimous vote.

Watch the viedo below to hear the sangat members discuss their experiences in Sacramento.
