United Sikhs issued a press release yesterday calling on concerned individuals to contact their U.S. Senators in an effort to "secure the support of the United States Senate to sign a letter to the French President expressing concern over the French ban on articles of faith in public schools and its impact on the Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, and Christian communities."
According to the media advisory, Senator Rick Santorum distributed a letter [.doc] to his Senate colleagues urging them to sign this letter.
United Sikhs offered the following instruction in its action alert: "Please state [to the Senator's office] that the French ban has resulted in Sikhs not being able to wear their turbans to schools. As a result of the French ban, Sikh students have been expelled from schools. The expelled students have started legal action against the French government. State that the turban is required by the Sikh faith and cannot be compromised."
"To find out more information about what United Sikhs is doing to fight the French ban on articles of faith, please visit: www.unitedsikhs.org/rtt/" (capitalization removed).
