The Junior Sikh Coalition Today!

alt

In its proud third year, the Junior Sikh Coalition has continued its powerful work to inspirit the youth and strengthen our community.  Through the Know Your Rights on Bullying and Nirbhau Nirvair Poetry & Art Campaigns, the members continue to deliver workshops to other youth to equip their peers with the same trainings and knowledge they have received in social justice, advocacy, community development, and empowerment. 

 

Through their work and dedication, the Junior Sikh Coalition members hope to prevent further discrimination, spread awareness of the Sikh faith, build bridges with other communities, and motivate youth to shape their futures with knowledge and love.

 

 

 

 

JSC's First Open Mic Night: A Night of Expression

alt

 

The Junior Sikh Coalition is proud to announce its first Open Mic Night: A Night of Expression!

Calling all youth: Share a poem, sing a song, showcase artwork, or anything that represents who you are. 

 

On Saturday, April 18th, 2015, the JSC will be hosting its first-ever open mic night for high school and college students.  This event is a youth-run youth event to allow students to express themselves freely through arts.  Having published the NIrbhau & Nirvair Poetry & Art book last year, featuring beautiful artwork and poetry from Sikh youth between the ages of 5-25 across the nation, this is the Junior Sikh Coalition's next initiative to encourage youth to creatively and freely express themselves. 

 

For more information, check out the Facebook event and RSVP on our event page!

 

Coming soon:  Nirbhau Nirvair Poetry & Art Book online

The 'Nirbhau Nirvair' Poetry & Art Book showcases Sikh youths’ perspectives on 'Nirbhau Nirvair' - without fear and without hatred. This book is a part of a larger, nationwide Nirbhau Nirvair campaign that addresses bullying and hate crimes - issues that often affect Sikh youth. Through this campaign, the Junior Sikh Coalition works to empower Sikh youth to be fearless leaders living without hate.

 

The book has been published and well received by many community members! We are working to create a PDF version for everyone's viewing.  

Check back soon to see our youth's beautiful creativity and passion.
