Last Thursday, Sikh youth who have been taking a stand against bigotry in schools were honored by the Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH) at the NYU School of Medicine’s annual Asian American Health Conference. The Sikh Coalition youth activists were among many distinguished awardees including government officials, nonprofit leaders, and other youth and community activists who have been working for healthier, more empowered Asian American communities.
The word is getting around New York that Sikh youth are fired up and making a difference. We’re extremely proud of these young Singhs and Kaurs who have been working to make New York City schools safer and more welcoming for all students. Thanks to CSAAH for recognizing and honoring their important work.
