When global humanitarian Ravi Singh’s account was blocked on Instagram at the height of the pandemic, he was only one of many Sikh voices that continue to be silenced to this day. 

At SALDEF, we know fighting oppression doesn't start and end online. That's why we 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 began to compile a report that offers a set of four policy recommendations for mitigating censorship of our community.  With your support, we can continue the development of this censorship report, present our findings to national media outlets and reputable partner organizations and ensure this issue is addressed at a national level.

Will you join us in combating the silencing of Sikh voices? Please donate now to make this censorship report a reality.
