Washington D.C. -- June 13, 2007: This past week, the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) successfully resolved two incidents; one of denial of accommodation to a Sikh American male due to his relgiously mandated dastaar (turban) and the other of inaccurate representation in the media of Sikhs. SALDEF worked cooperatively with Lucky Strike Entertainment, an international business based in Los Angeles, CA, and The Gallup World Poll, a subsidiary of the Gallup Organization, to quickly remedy misunderstandings with the Sikh American community and set a model example of how businesses can react when situations occur around confusion with the Sikh American community and identity.
