Join us for an afternoon of coffee and snacks as our speakers discuss "Real Life Sikhi". For the curious and open minded.

Board Chair, SikhRI Canada & Seva Food Bank, Kulvir Singh, and former Board Executive, SAFAR, Kirpa Kaur will be sharing how Sikhi has shaped their personal journeys and day-to-day life. We will discuss how Sikhi has influenced & inspired their decision making.

The event will be moderated by Inderdeep Kaur, President, Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research & University of Alberta Sikh Students' Association.

All are welcome. You don't need to be a Sikh or know anything about Sikhi to attend.
The event will begin with a conversation between our speakers, followed by an open dialogue with all of our guests. Bring all of your weird, wild and wonderful questions!
