NEW YORK: SALDEF was founded in 1996 with a simple idea: to serve and empower the Sikh American community. In a statement on the occasion, SALDEF said, “It is both with a great sense of accomplishment and humility that we observe our 15 year anniversary. We know our work would not be possible without the generous support and encouragement of the community.”
It said, “In our 15 years, we have produced groundbreaking educational resources, addressed anti-Sikh bias in the media, and overturned discriminatory legislation. SALDEF will continue to develop and deliver solutions that ensure we collectively succeed without ever compromising our beliefs or identity,” it concluded.
