We at the Sindhi American Political Action Committee (SAPAC) are honored to share the great news that Congressman Sanford Bishop Jr (D-GA) has joined the Congressional Sindh Caucus. The Congressman has being serving his Georgia district since 1993. During this time he has committed to striving for better education, safe and secure communities and an overall better quality of life. In past sessions of Congress, Bishop Jr has also been the Senior Democratic Whip. We thank him for bringing his expertise to the Sindh Caucus as well as showcasing his commitment to the Sindhi community and the issues affecting 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.
