Building Bridges over Cultures for Social De-Segregation
Organized by: Inderjit Kallirai
Addressing Hate Crimes by Building Bridges over Cultures for Social De-Segregation. Recent wave of Hate crimes in the USA demonstrate that we must Build Bridges over Cultures for Social De-Segregation. In so doing we can construct assimilated and unified communities. Requires Americans to collaborate and share cultures thus educating each other and eliminate cultural ignorance. Lack of cultural understanding and ignorance of our cultural melting pot is resulting in our current out burst of hate crimes. The need to assimilate amongst ourselves is critical and a responsibility of all Americans. In order for us to address hate crimes together we must understand and trust each other. Trust grows with knowledge. The more we know the better we can trust each other. Recent wave of hate crimes have been directed at Sikhs because of their distinct identity and appearance. Our first phase of events for Building Bridges over Cultures for Social De-Segregation is geared towards educating Americans about Sikh Americans. Funds: We are raising funds for seed money to enable us to pay basic expenses for hosting cultural awareness events in partnership with our major sports leagues and teams: We have upcoming events with the NBA, NHL, NFL and other leagues. Under the Banner - "Kaurs Singhs and XXXXXX" XXXXXX = the specific Sports team.
