Are you that attorney?
This position is open only to attorneys admitted to at least one U.S. based jurisdiction, preferably New York.
“The staff attorney will work as part of the Sikh Coalition’s Legal Program, which provides legal assistance to Sikhs who have been discriminated against or subject to bias based upon their religious beliefs or Sikh identity. Over the past fourteen years, our attorneys have successfully litigated cases against major government and corporate employers alike, creating game-changing legal precedents and opening up opportunities for Sikhs to fearlessly live, congregate, work, play, learn, and raise our children in America. Our Legal Program is committed to ensuring that no Sikh ever has to choose between his or her faith and the American dream” reads update by the Sikh Coalition.
The Legal Program takes on cases depending upon its ability to provide a superior level of quality service and prioritizes cases that have a high impact for the Sikh community. These cases generally include hate crimes, employment discrimination, bias-based school bullying, religion-based discrimination, profiling and other forms of discrimination.
