Founded in 1996, the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund SALDEF is the nation''s oldest Sikh American civil rights and educational organization. SALDEF’s mission is to protect the civil rights of Sikh Americans and ensure a fostering environment in the United States. SALDEF empowers Sikh Americans through educational outreach, media relations, leadership development and legal and legislative advocacy.

Some of our cornerstone programs include:

1) SikhLEAD: The purpose of SikhLEAD is to inspire, train, and support a diverse, motivated and entrepreneurial group of young Sikh Americans as they prepare for a lifetime of community engagement and community leadership.

2) SikhVOTE: This is a non-partisan, community-driven initiative to increase voter engagement and registration with in-language resources and materials. By registering to vote and voting Sikh Americans can make their voice heard and help determine the direction of their country.

3) Law Enforcement Partnership Program (LEPP): Started in 1999, the Law Enforcement Partnership Program builds relationships between local communities and law enforcement through educational programs, resources, and events.

4) Know Your Rights: The purpose of the Know Your Rights Forum is to

(1) Introduce Sikh American community members to agencies and groups that can address complaints, incident, or issues, and

(2) Provide local, state and federal government agencies the opportunity to build and maintain relationships with and address the specific needs of their local Sikh American Community.
