Surat Sikh Conference 2018


Our flagship program, the annual Surat Sikh Conference, will take place in New York and New Jersey this upcoming January during the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. We are excited about our theme this year, which we think is especially relevant -- Miri Piri: Connecting the Spiritual and Political Through Sikhi 


The conference will be geared toward individuals who want to learn about Sikhi and create positive change, and the programs will feature interactive workshops, guest speakers, an evening banquet, and our renowned open mic night. 


This year, our conference will take place on January 12-15. Registration will be opening on December 2nd.  In the past, our registration has filled within 24-48 hours, so make sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible.


We look forward to seeing you all there!


Support Our Educational Efforts!

Our partners at the Dasvandh Network have created an incredible platform for charitable giving among the Sikh community. We have been fortunate to receive considerable support from those who have experienced our programs, and we deeply appreciate these contributions -- it is this generosity that allows us to continue our programs. Please visit our page with Dasvandh Network and show your support by making a contribution of your own!
