DONATIONS TO THIS EFFORT ARE BEING MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR!
Since 2012, SikhVOTE has been one of SALDEF's most impactful initiatives. The right to vote is at the cornerstone of American democracy, and we want to ensure that the Sikh American voice is heard on Capitol Hill, state capitals and towns throughout the country
Across the country, a new era of voter suppression sweeps states with populations that need this constitutional right the most. With fewer polling locations, reduced open polling hours, and vote-by-mail restrictions, these measures have targeted communities of color, including Sikh Americans. Additionally, as our nation grapples with salient issues such as healthcare, gun control, anti-AAPI hate, and more, there has never been a more appropriate time to organize and mobilize.
By donating to SikhVOTE, SALDEF will be able to host phone/text banking campaigns, door-to-door knocking events, and tabling opportunities in local gurdwaras across the US, urging Sikh Americans to head to the polls this November. In addition, your donation will result in the development of up to date information and resources on voting rights and regulations in both English and Punjabi.
We're working towards building the overall voting power of the Sikh American community. We vote on the quality of life we want for ourselves and our future generations. Voting is our chance to stand up for the issues we care about, so let's seize the opportunity and make sure Sikh Americans head to the polls this fall!
Through your support we will:
- Mobilize and register new Sikh American voters across the country
- Achieve our goal to conduct targeted outreach in eleven key states: Arizona, California, Georgia, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Texas, and Virginia
- Hold focused programs in places with significant Sikh American populations and power
Make your voices heard and support SALDEF's SikhVOTE initiative!
