Postby Canuck Singh » Wed Jul 16, 2008 2:49 pm

This thread is to help YOU, wherever you are to protect your legal rights, your human rights, and to allow you to practice your faith free of discrimination and with honour. The various sources are legal aides, and should be used to report any bias incidents, and for you to get legal advice. Nobody wants to be alone when bias affects them, and this is a source of sites that are out there to help you:

- Based out of New York in response to increased biased incidents since 11th Nov 2001
- Check out their brochures available in 6 languages
- New Khalsa kids website

2. SALDEF -

3. United Sikhs -
