Stand with us. We’re partnering with the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective (BEAM), an organization that focuses on healing within the Black community through extensive training, coalition building and policy programs. DOUBLE YOUR DONATION by using the code “BEAM” at checkout. 

Since the founding of the faith, Sikhs have an inspiring history of standing up for those who have faced injustices. Our Gurus taught us concepts like ‘Sura so pehchania jo lade den ke heth’ and  ‘Sarbat da Bhala’ to ensure we understand our broader responsibility to the world.

As Sikhs Americans, it is our duty to support human and civil rights universally and domestically. In light of recent events in our country, we stand in solidarity with the Black community as they continue to face countless challenges at the hands of systemic racism. We have to continue finding ways to educate our community on the obstacles that they face and help to dismantle historical systems of oppression in our country however we can. 

Mental health and healing play an important role in sustainable social movements. This campaign seeks to support the work of the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective (BEAM). BEAM’s mission is to remove the barriers that Black people experience getting access to or staying connected with emotional healthcare through organizing, education, training and advocacy.  The money we raise through this campaign will help BEAM increase their microgrant efforts for front-line doulas, therapists and community workers across the country. It will also expand their movement and coalition building work by helping fund a national roundtable dedicated to local and national policy change for Black and marginalized communities. These donations will support long-term social change within the Black community and all those who benefit from the Black community’s leadership in civil rights. 

The following organizations are working in partnership with us on this campaign: Sikh Coalition, Sikh Family Center, Sikhnet, United Sikh Movement, Sikh Human Development Foundation, Sikhs of America, Jakara Movement, Kaur Life, Kaur Films, International Center for Advocates Against Discrimination, International Institute of Gurmat Studies, Camp Sikh Virsa, Tri-Valley Sikh Center and numerous other activists. Rather than giving individual gifts, we decided to come together to amplify our support and use this as a catalyst for future projects.

Our intent is to highlight and celebrate the work that BEAM is doing, we also recognize that there are countless other incredible community organizations doing amazing work across various issue areas with differing amounts of need. This campaign is simply one way in which Dasvandh Network and Sikh activists plan to leverage their platforms to stand in solidarity with the Black community in the many years to come. 

Dasvandh Network will be collecting funds through Saturday, August 15th and will deliver a check to BEAM, extending the Sikh Community's hand in partnership.

    Goal Met!

    THANK YOU FOR DONATING! Our Sikh Community Fundraiser for BEAM has reached its goal of $25K! We couldn’t have done it without the support of all our partner organizations and our wider community of allies. Staying united is more important than ever and we are grateful to have so many different people help us reach our goal.

    This campaign was just one way to stand in solidarity with the Black community. We aim to continue collaborating with other organizations within, but also, outside of our community as there is so much more work to be done.

    We hope to grow, learn and collaborate with BEAM into the future and support the great work they are doing. We are looking forward to continuing seeing important conversations and initiatives on racial justice and healing within the Sikh community and beyond.

    Gratitude to Our Partners

    Vaaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

    Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign so far. We truly appreciate your donations to support the incredible work that BEAM is doing. With your generosity, we've had a great start and are looking forward to continue building the momentum. 

    We wanted to take a second to show our appreciate for all the various Sikh organizations that have helped make this project a reality: 

     

     

    There are also numerous other activists who have also taken time and energy out to help spread the word about this initiative. Without the great guidance and assistance of all these folks, this project would not have happen.

    It is important for the Sikh community to stand together in moments of need. Whether it's this campaign or any fuure projects, we're very excited to continue partnering with all Sikh activists in the days to come.
