Surat | 2020

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.


We were especially excited about our theme, Sangat: Creating a supportive & inclusive community. Special emphasis was given to the area of Mental Health and well-being. 


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. 


The Conference takes place over MLK weekend. Registration typically opens in November.  In the past, our registration has filled within 24-48 hours.
