The Sikh Coalition is inviting applications for its third annual Sikh Advocate Academy, an all-expenses paid training program held from June 16-22, 2013, in Washington, D.C.:

Our objective is to train and cultivate a corps of dedicated volunteers who will enhance the Sikh American community’s fight for civil rights both locally and nationally. Through focused planning and execution, our goal over the next five years is to build a “trained and certified” corps of grassroots advocates who consistently support the cause of civil rights.

I was a participant in last year’s program and found it to be a very inspiring and rewarding experience. If you are interested in championing Sikh civil rights in your community or across the country, this is a unique opportunity for you to receive tools, training and relationships to accomplish that goal.

The application deadline is April 5, 2013. For more information and to apply, visit the Sikh Advocate Academy website at http://www.sikhadvocates.org.
