Resistance in Sikhi: Directions from Bani & History

Join us as this afternoon as we look back at how the Gurus and Sikhs have historically confronted enemies of freedom, justice, and equal rights. The presentation will be followed by an open & interactive discussion on resistance in today's world.

Rooted in Bani, Inderpreet Singh will detail how Guru Ji outlines the values in Sikhi that inspire Sikhs to lead and participate in revolutionary movements. We will explore examples from history on how Sikhs organized and mobilized to make lasting change towards freedom, justice and equal rights for all. Amanpreet Singh will then facilitate a discussion based around current day issues and how to apply the framework of resistance, from the Guru's perspective, today.
