Fighting Prejudice with Votes, Sikhs in New York

In 2006, Grassroots Initiative partnered with the nation’s leading Sikh civil and human rights organization, the Sikh Coalition, to help elect the first-ever Sikh elected officials in New York.

In this bold new exhibit, Brooklyn-based photographer Sarah Tew documents the experience in images, juxtaposing the private and public lives of the Sikh community and the process of merging these lives through entry into the political process. The images provide an intimate look into the culture, faith and recent triumphs of one of New York’s most colorful and least understood ethnic communities.
