How You Can Help
Our role at SALDEF is to be an organization that advocates with and for Sikh Americans through policy, media, and education. We are changemakers who want to dream, inspire and explore the ways that Sikh Americans can make progress on a national level, but we need every Sikh American to help on a local level.
- Like SALDEF on Facebook.
- Follow us on Twitter.
- Follow us on Instagram.
- Communicate with us by posting on the social media channels listed above. Or, send us an email by clicking here.
- Support us with a regular monthly donation to keep sustain our work for the years ahead.
- Motivate the youth! Tell a young person you know to join SikhLEAD and work on Capitol Hill during the summer or grow as a leader during the school ye
ar. He or she can have a great summer in DC with other Sikh youth and join a program to learn the leadership skills and advocate for our community in the future.
- Educate! Talk to your friends. Talk to your neighbors. Talk to your community. Talk to local school teachers and administrators. Being a good neighbor is more than an insurance tag, it’s the reason we are a visible and integral part of the fabric of America. (And don’t forget, we have resources and presentations available if you want or need to do more.) Send us a message and let us know!
- Write an op-ed! Upset by a new policy? Want to change your daughter or son’s future? Need to discuss the news or take a stand on an opinion? Become a part of the dialogue. Write about it and send it to SALDEF or to your local newspaper, radio or television station. Or even more simple: write a blog and post it. It doesn’t have to be fancy and you don’t have to be a professional writer. Don’t know how? Contact us and we can help you.
Let Bhagat Singh Thind who fought for citizenship guide you. Remember Congressman Dalip Singh Saund who fearlessly ran for Congress and build your courage. Allow Amrita Bamrah, a former SikhLEADer and current SALDEF staff member who fed thousands with her college Sikh Students Association Langar on two college campuses, to serve as an inspiration.
