Washington D.C. -- The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) and the management of the Tri-State Sikh Cultural Society have invited the Pittsburgh Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to speak with the community on Sunday January 7, 2006.

Sikh American youth and young professionals are encouraged to attend this event to learn more about FBI recruitment and possible employment opportunities.

For the past few months, SALDEF has been advocating to increase the recruitment of Sikh Americans into the FBI. In meetings with FBI Headquarters and the Washington Field Office, agency representatives have indicated that Sikh American youth, including those who possess Punjabi language skills, are highly desirable to the FBI.

The purpose of this event is to help foster greater partnership between the local FBI field office and the Sikh American community. SALDEF encourages all residents of the Tri-State area to attend this event. We thank the management and community members of Tri-State Sikh Cultural Society for supporting and co-sponsoring this event.
