Know Your Rights Forums in Upstate NY

April 20th, 2017

The SALDEF team and our partners will be hosting a Know Your Rights (KYR) Forum at the Sikh Society of Rochester this Sunday, April 23 from 12pm-1pm.

We will be covering a variety of topics including: school bullying, workplace discrimination, hate crimes, and information on your rights while flying.

The purpose of the KnoSALDEF Know Your Rights Sangat.jpgw Your Rights Forum is to: (1) introduce Sikh American community members to agencies and groups that can address complaints, incidents, or issues they may have and (2) provide local, state, and federal governmental agencies the opportunity to build relationships with and address the specific needs of their local Sikh American community.

Participating agencies include representatives from the FBI, local school superintendent, TSA, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, US Attorney’s Office, and Department of Justice Community Relations Service. Attendees will also have the chance to ask questions about specific matters.

SALDEF will be hosting similar events across the country, including one at the Buffalo Gurdwara on April 30, 2017. If you feel your local sangat could benefit from a Know Your Rights Forum, please complete this form.
