“The National Sikh American Survey is the first of its kind and will be critical in tailoring SALDEF to the needs of the community,” said Kiran Kaur Gill SALDEF Executive Director. “SALDEF’s fundamental goal is to ensure that we are providing the resources needed for the community to excel.  This survey will not only help us with our programming but also help to ensure the wants and needs of the community are heard by decision makers.”
