Survey Results to Serve as Barometer for Hate Crimes & Establish Civil Rights Priorities
Washington, D.C., May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — UNITED SIKHS today announced the launch of its 2018 Global Civil Rights Survey, a tool which will help the organization better advocate for civil and human rights on behalf of the Sikh community. Now through August 2018, the survey will be available on the organization’s website (unitedsikhs.org), as well as on its Facebook and Twitter pages, and throughout its network of supporting gurdwaras.
“UNITED SIKHS is proud of the progress we have achieved on some of key issues facing the Sikh community, especially in the areas of cultural awareness, justice for hate crimes, and religious freedom for articles of faith in public sectors, such as law enforcement and the military,” said Hardayal Singh, Executive Director of UNITED SIKHS. “With the launch of our annual Global Civil Rights Survey, we look forward to hearing directly from our community members, as we also recognize that more work still needs to be done.”
At a time when hate crimes continue to be on the rise in the United States and across other nations around the world, UNITED SIKHS strives to be a leader in the fight against incidents of hate, bias, discrimination and intolerance. Preliminary results from the survey will serve as a primary focus during the UNITED SIKHS Annual Summit in Washington D.C., slated for July 2018.
The organization will release a full Global Civil Rights Report in conjunction with this effort at the UNITED SIKHS 6th Annual Civil and Human Rights Conference in Italy.
