Our Mission & Vision

Jakara Movement is a grassroots organization that strengthens community engagement and creates empowerment. By focusing on issues of civic engagement, education, health, and social justice, Jakara Movement inclusively engages large sections of the youth in various projects to strengthen their consciousness, foster education, and inspire activism. Though our work is inspired by Sikh principles, Jakara Movement is an inclusive and diverse organization, and our volunteers come from all backgrounds and cultures. Much of our work is done in collaboration with other community groups and nonprofits. We believe a world of engaged communities, strong families, healthy individuals and inspired youth is possible.
