Sikh Coalition Receives Interfaith Tribute Award


This summer, the Interfaith Center of New York presented "The James Park Morton Interfaith Tribute" to Harpreet Singh, Director of Community Relations for the Sikh Coalition. Singh received the award in recognition of his work towards making New York a safer place to live in response to the wave of hate crimes and violence that had erupted against minorities after September 11, 2001. Others who were honored at the event included Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nina and Daniel Libeskind, Uma Mysoreakar, Ratan Barua and Ayisha Al-Adawiya. The event, which took place at the Manhattan Center, also consisted of presentations by John Whitehead and Harry Belafonte, a performance by Abdel Salaam and The Forces of Nature Dance Theater Company, a tribute to local leaders and interfaith blessings.
