Surat | 2020

Registration Full! Please sign up for the waitlist!

MLK Weekend
January 17-20

Our flagship program, the annual Surat Sikh Conference, took place in New York and New Jersey in January during the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.


The theme of this year’s conference is “Kaurs and Singhs: Equality and Equity in Sikhi.” 550 years after Guru Nanak’s birth, we will reflect on the Guru's message of equality and equity for all, with a particular focus on how patriarchy impacts our workplaces, classrooms, and communities. We will explore Gurbani, history, culture, and current social and political issues. Our goal is to equip young professionals and students with tools and tactics they can use in their lives to build more inclusive and equitable workplaces and communities.


The Surat Conference is geared toward individuals who want to learn about Sikhi and create positive change, and the programs feature interactive workshops, guest speakers, an evening banquet, and our renowned open mic night.
