New American Sikh Congressional Caucus Formed

IANS reported last week that 28 members of Congress from both political parties have joined the new American Sikh Congressional Caucus. The caucus is co-chaired by Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) and Rep. David Valadao (R-CA). The Caucus plans to focus on issues such as dress regulations that prevent Sikhs from serving in the military; violence and bullying faced by Sikhs in the U.S.; racial profiling; and employment discrimination.
