LALKAAR 2024: 1984 - Quam Di Vangaar

June 20, 2024 - June 23, 2024
Merced, CA

LALKAAR (ਲਲਕਾਰ) 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, 1984: The Battle of Amritsar & Beyond, 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 in its 24th year, the longevity of the conference speaks for itself. Join us as we continue these vital conversations.
