Our flagship program, the annual Surat Sikh Conference, will take place in Manhattan, New York this upcoming January during the
Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. The conference will be geared toward individuals that want to learn about Sikhi and create positive change, and the programs will feature interactive workshops, guest
speakers, an evening banquet, open mic night, and creative arts sessions.
We are really excited about our theme this year -- Sikh Activism and Social Justice. We will use Sikh frameworks to consider various social and political issues, from racism and bigotry in modern America to the recent Sarbat Khalsa in Punjab.
This past year, The Surat Fauj Running Club has made tremendous strides in organizing races, building community, and creating awareness about Sikhi through positive stories. In addition to being featured in Runner's World, the Surat Fauj has also been profiled by other major outlets, including the Huffington Post, Brown Girl Magazine, Global City NYC, and CBS Radio.
We are incredibly proud of all you who have made progress through our club and look forward to continuing the journey with you all in the future!
Our partners at the Dasvandh Network have created an incredible platform for charitable giving among the Sikh community.
