New Tool Developed to Help Protect Sikh Travelers' Rights
October 26, 2007: On Saturday, October 27, 2007, new airport screening procedures will go into effect with respect to baggy clothing and all head coverings. To help Sikh travelers go through the screening process, the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF), the Sikh Coalition, and UNITED SIKHS, have developed "A Sikh Traveler's Guide" to screening procedures at American airports.
The "Sikh Traveler's Guide" contains a detailed description of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) head covering screening policy and steps to be taken if you are wearing a turban. The document also describes your rights as a traveler through America's airports. It is available in English and Punjabi. [SALDEF Press Release]
