The Sikh Coalition received the 2010 Public Service Achievement Award from the North American South Asian Bar Association (NASABA) during its annual convention in Boston, from June 25 to June 27. The award is meant to recognize public interest organizations that excel in serving the South Asian community in North America.
Sa’adiyah Masoud, Vice-President of the South Asian Bar Association of Greater Boston presented the award to us on behalf of NASABA. Her remarks cited the Coalition’s work to: obtain a historic accommodations for two Sikh Army doctors; repeal a Oregon law that prevented Sikhs from serving as public schools teachers; and combat discrimination in the workplace as some of the reasons for the award.
This is the second year in a row NASABA has been good enough to honor the Coalition. Last year I was honored to receive NASABA’s Public Interest Achievement Award for my work with the Coalition.
The Coalition thanks NASABA for its leadership and partnership. We truly value its leadership of the South Asian bar in North America.
