“Recently, a Colorado community leader, Dilpreet Jammu, contacted SALDEF after a Sikh in his state was told to alter his turban for his driver’s license photo. Alongside The United States Department of Justice, SALDEF worked towards a resolution that would not only resolve this Sikh American’s issue, but would have a positive impact far beyond Colorado”, the release reads further.
