Amardeep Singh is the co-founder of the Sikh Coalition, the largest Sikh civil rights organization in the United States. He currently serves as its Director of Programs where he oversees the Coalition's use of litigation, advocacy, and community organizing to advance social justice goals.

Amar has represented dozens of Sikh victims of airport profiling, employment discrimination, and hate crimes since the organization's inception after 9/11. Along with Department of Homeland Security officials, he helped to formulate guidelines governing the searches of Sikh passengers in U.S. airports. His work also led to the formulation of a regulation protecting 1.1 million New York City public school students from bias-based harassment in schools.

Amardeep talks about being bullied just walking the streets in NYC. Singh talks about how he was raised in Hoboken New Jersey, his mother was a soccer mom, he played little league baseball and is a avid Yankee fan but he still is bullied and accused of being a terrorist. Amardeep claims that the Sikh community has multiple hate crimes against them confusing his community with a terrorist group. He is very active in lowering these taboos about his community and wishes the bullying would stop.

It is just really gross that people can be so ignorant to wrongfully bully someone over race and they cant even properly determine who they are trying to be racist toward

A mistaken hate crime should be punished worse than a regular hate crime. So much hate and people cant even explain why they hate so much
