Report your Dastaar (turban) screening experience encountered at Airports



VaaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, VaaheGuru Ji Ke Fateh!
 
Dear UNITED SIKHS Team
 
Happy New Year!  Hope everybody is doing well.  As we reported last year, the (Transportation Security Administration) TSA has implemented changes in how they screen Sikhs and their turbans in US airports.   For details, please visit http://www.unitedsikhs.org/PressReleases/COMVCE-27-10-2007-00.htm.
 
UNITED SIKHS Legal Team is continually monitoring the situation, and is in regular communication with TSA officials about these changes.  Thus, please report any incidents that have happened to you or your friends while travelling in US airports.  We will then report these incidents and will rectify the issue. 
 
To report any incidents,  please go to http://www.unitedsikhs.org/turban_screening/ts-form-main.php or e-mail us your report at unitedsikhs-usa@unitedsikhs.org

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.
