Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa!
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
Dear Bakersfield sangat ji & beyond,
Growing up in the Bakersfield community, I had a unique insight into disparities of inequality. It was during my years away from California while pursuing my degree in Political Science that I promised to learn, return, and strive for equity in the political, economic, and social development of the Central Valley. During college, I concentrated on understanding the Punjabi history that led so many families to immigrate in the Central Valley during the 1980s.
