At SALDEF, we know fighting oppression doesn't start and end online. That's why we are also committed to taking the fight on the ground – from leveraging our relationships with the government and technology leaders to advance specific policy recommendations to collecting incidents of social media censorship to create a database and understand the scope of the issue.
As the nation’s oldest advocacy organization seeking to protect Sikhs and the Sikh identity from prejudice and hate, we are also committed to fighting for the civil rights of Sikhs in the digital world.
When #Sikh was banned worldwide, SALDEF conducted extensive research exploring the persistent censorship of Sikhs worldwide by social media platforms. Citing specific case studies, SALDEF released reports that offer a set of policy recommendations for mitigating censorship of our community.
With your support, we can continue publishing more research reports and presenting our findings to national media outlets and reputable partner organizations to ensure this issue is addressed at a national level in the U.S.
