SAN

The Code

Recognize Vaheguru’s (universal energy) light within all, and do not consider social class or status; there are no classes or castes in the world hereafter.

-Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Introduction

The Sikh Activist Network will work to reignite the culture of social activism in the Sikh path. The Sri Guru Granth Sahib (SGGS) represents our manifesto and inspiration for social change. It advocates a message of love for all and the equality of all people regardless of their caste, color, creed, gender or sex. The SGGS promotes the pursuit of a society which embodies these principles.

The Sikh Activist Network has 3 goals

Empowerment

We work to raise the level of self respect, self worth, consciousness and confidence of our community, with a specific emphasis on youth.

Work

We work to move youth away from substance abuse, violence and other negative influences and engage them in positive initiatives and programs.

Share

We create spaces where our community can share their experiences, knowledge and ideas.  Here we work to create dialogue amongst all levels of our community.

The Sikh principles of Naam Jappo, Kirat Karo, and Vand Ke Chhako inspire the goals of Sikh Activist Network.
