We at the Sindhi American Political Action Committee (SAPAC) are honored to share the wonderful news that Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) has joined the Congressional Sindh Caucus. Norton is the first woman to chair the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Congresswoman is a well known civil rights and feminist leader. She has also been in the list of 100 most important American Women. We thank her bringing for her expertise to the Sindh Caucus and showcasing her commitment to the Sindhi community and the issues that affect them.
The Sindh Caucus is a bipartisan caucus in the US Congress that was founded by current chair, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA). The Representatives feel deeply about the concerns of the Sindhi community. Through joining the Sindh Caucus they will be made aware of Sindhi heritage, culture, and values. This will result in a deeper understanding of the human rights violations occurring to Sindhis in the Sindh province of Pakistan, such as forced conversions, enforced disappearances, and extrajudicial killings, etc. By joining the Sindh Caucus, U.S. Representatives are able to better raise their voice against these human rights abuses against Sindhi people.
