The longest running Sikh conference in the US, Lalkaar is one of a kind. It creates a platform where difficult, thought provoking, and inspirational conversations take place on topics ranging from but never limited to, The Guru Granth Sahib: The History of the Sikh Soul, Kaur Voices: Exhalt, Express, Empower, Gurudware: Empowering Local Democracy, Remembering 1984, and Building Begampura:Confronting Caste. Our Sikh youth come together and create a forum in which these conversations flourish as we expand on and openly discuss issues that affect us as individuals and as a greater Panth. What brings our Sikh youth back to Lalkaar year after year since 2000? Now into its 17th year, the longevity of the conference speaks for itself. Join us as we continue these vital conversations.
This platform takes courageous and passionate individuals to contribute to its success. Apart from the important conversations that take place, there is great effort and dedication needed in order to plan each logistical detail, structural working, workshop content, and so much more.
