Person of the Year Award, India Abroad
I was honored to receive a 2013 Person of the Year award from India Abroad. But I must share this award with a rising generation of Sikh and South Asian Americans devoted to justice work — the stellar staff at the Sikh Coalition, Groundswell, SALDEF, SAALT, and many more. I am proud to be part of a new generation of Americans rising to join a larger movement for human dignity and civil rights. Here is my acceptance speech, a reflection and call to action for the future as we approach the one-year anniversary of the Oak Creek tragedy.
