The team will continue visiting other Gurdwaras over the next few months with hopes to empower other youth to recognize and report bullying in their schools, share experiences with one another, and build a positive support system within youth sangats.


The Junior Sikh Coalition Today!


In its fourth year, the Junior Sikh Coalition has proudly 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, these leaders 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.
