Fresno Forum Seeks to Stop Bullying of Sikh Students

In the wake of a national survey that revealed widespread bullying of Sikh students, local communities are stepping up their efforts to combat discrimination against them. At a forum held in Fresno last night Sikh community leaders came together with local educators and the public to learn more about the 500,000 Sikhs that live in the United States, and what they can do to create a safe environment in the schools that teach their children. The San Joaquin Valley is home to 35,000 Sikhs. Vic Bedoian filed this report.
