Sikhs around the world have been weighing in on issues of hate crimes, xenophobia, current policies and practices toward minority communities, and the particular challenges of the Sikh community over the last 2 years. In 2010, we hope to increase the number of surveys completed, which requires action from you, the reader. UNITED SIKHS urges you to complete the survey and tell everyone you know in your community to do so as well.

Also, please forward the link to friends and family who may be interested in participating. The more people complete the questionnaire, the stronger we can advocate for our rights in the global community.


Take note of another opportunity to participate in setting an agenda for global Sikh civil and human rights by attending the 3rd Global Sikh Civil Rights Conference. For more information on the conference, visit this website or read a previous press release.

OUR MISSION

To transform underprivileged and minority communities and individuals into informed and vibrant members of society through civic, educational and personal development programs, by fostering active participation in social and economic activity.

UNITED SIKHS is also an avenue for networking between like-minded organisations to establish and nurture meaningful projects and dialogues - whether social, cultural or political- to promote harmony, understanding and reciprocity in our villages, towns and cities.

UNITED SIKHS is a coalition of organisations and individuals, who share a common vision based on the belief that there is no greater endeavour than to serve, empower and uplift fellow beings. The core of our philosophy is an unwavering commitment to civic service and social progress on behalf of the common good.

Accordingly, UNITED SIKHS has sought to fulfil its mission not only by informing, educating and uplifting fellow beings but also by participating in cross-cultural and political exchanges to ensure that the promises and benefits of democracy are realized by all.

We at UNITED SIKHS believe that the development of enlightened and progressive societies can be made possible by socially conscious groups of people who make a commitment to develop and direct human potential. Our work, efforts and achievements stand as a testament to our faith in this vision.
