Tell the FBI: Track hate crimes against Sikh Americans
Victory! On Wednesday, June 5th, an FBI advisory policy board voted to track hate crimes against Sikh, Hindu, and Arab Americans. We did this together!
We are proud to follow the leadership of the Sikh Coalition on this important effort. As a result of their advocacy, Congressman Joe Crowley, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Dick Durbin, more than 100 bipartisan members of Congress and Attorney General Eric Holder publicly endorsed the request. Thank you also to all our partner organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League and South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT). We are especially grateful to the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) for first championing this issue with the FBI in 2010. They are among many tireless advocates who worked for years to make this day possible.
