Surat 2021

Sikh Conference 



Ages 18-35

Registration  Full!


Surat '21

Given the ongoing Covid pandemic, our flagship program, the annual Surat Sikh Conference, will take place virtually February 12-13.

The theme of this year’s conference is Planting the Seed: Building Sangat and Solidarity Across Distance. We'll reflect on the lessons we've learned over the past year, including how to build and support social movements like black lives matter, the kisaan movement in India, and political movements in the United States. Using these lessons, and centering principles of Chardi Kala, Seva, and Sangat, we'll discuss concrete steps for movement-building around global issues in a post-pandemic world.


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, and networking opportunities. Please note: the conference is limited to those 18-35 years old.

We look forward to seeing you there!
