The city council also resolved to support the passage of two federal acts, the Safe Schools Improvement Act and Student Non-Discrimination Act that would require direct congressional oversight and reporting requirements.

Although both Sikh advocacy groups also endorsed passage of the federal acts, which focus on basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, United Sikhs asked that they be inclusive of Sikhs.

“For any policy or anti-bullying legislation to be effective in safe-guarding Sikh youth, United Sikhs urged that it must include requirements for any data reporting to include categories for Sikhs or have generic categories where Sikhs can be identified so as to get accurate numbers on the impact that bullying is having on Sikh students,” according to its news release.
