The Social Justice Project provides educational resources related to the major issues with which the Sikh community is engaged. The issues covered range from Human Rights to the current economic and environmental crisis in Punjab. The Surat Fauj Running Club is one of the vehicles of education under this project, and each race by our team is in support of a particular cause. As a part of the Social Justice Project, Surat collaborated with Ensaaf to create the 2014 Remembrance Project, which commemorated the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Human Rights Violations in Punjab through art and media.
Every day, for the year 2014, we posted one historical item to document and commemorate 1984. These posts served to provide a historical context to the violence. Follow our project here to view how we commemorated the 30-year anniversary since the June and November violence against Sikhs in India.

Join hundreds of other Sikh youth in a unique initiative towards health, education, and social justice. The Surat Fauj Running Club focuses on spreading awareness on important social justice issues such as human rights and civil rights, and unites communities in fighting against these challenges.
This June, The Surat Initiative hosted "84 for '84," an 84-mile group relay run commemorating the 30-year anniversary of the 1984 anti-Sikh violence. The event sought to provide the community an opportunity to come together and engage actively while reflecting on the events of 1984. We appreciate the support of everyone who joined us.
