Join UNITED SIKHS to Celebrate California Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month!

UNITED SIKHS congratulates its volunteers and supporters on the fourth annual Sikh Awareness month in California, USA. In 2012, California State Legislature declared November as Sikh Awareness and Appreciation month-a month to recognize American Sikhs, and honor the contribution of Sikhs to American society.

This November, join us to help teach our fellow Americans about Sikhi:

“Be Your Own Superhero”

“Tie a Turban Day”

In collaboration with the San Jose State University Sikh Student Association, UNITED SIKHS aims to fight the stigma and stereotypes against turbans, and humanize individuals who wear them. This event will take place at San Jose State University, California on November 18, beginning at 11:00 AM Pacific Standard Time and lasting until 2:00 PM.

This year, we encourage all California residents to do their part to spread awareness about Sikhism and its followers. If you would like to organize a UNITED SIKHS Turban Tying Day or an Anti-Bullying Workshop, email
