This past Sunday, The Sikh Coalition and Asian Law Caucus (ALC) jointly outreached to the sangat at El Sobrante Gurdwara Sahib in California. Sikh Coalition representatives asked sangat members to sign the Army Campaign Petition and distributed Know Your Rights brochures about “Language Discrimination,” while Asian Law Caucus distributed Know Your Rights information on racial profiling and answered legal questions about immigration.  By presenting ourselves as resources to the community we were able to collectively provide information to help stop the violation of Sikhs’ civil rights in America. We plan to continue this joint effort at other California Gurdwaras.

The Asian Law Caucus is an ally of the Sikh community. We have worked together on legal cases and outreach in the past. Feel free to contact the Asian Law Caucus for professional legal advice in their program areas, such as immigration and housing. You can also read their reports on a wide-variety of civil right’s issues. Asian Law Caucus offers free legal clinics in their San Francisco Office and is continually developing resources to best meet civil rights. They can be contacted at 415.896.1701 from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday for more information.
