Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Dalip Singh Saund, the first Sikh American, the first Asian American, and the first Indian American to be elected to the U.S. Congress.
Saund first emigrated to the U.S. to continue his education in agriculture. After becoming a naturalized citizen, he ran for and won numerous local government positions, including a judgeship, before winning a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where he advocated for farmers and was a fierce supporter of the 1957 Civil Rights bill.
Join us in honoring Dalip Singh Saund by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
AAPI HERITAGE MONTH
Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic and Latina Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and one of five women who have served on the court. She was nominated by President Barack Obama and has served since 2009. Sotomayor has been identified with concern for the rights of defendants, calls for reform of the criminal justice system, and making impassioned dissents on issues of race, gender and ethnic identity.
Join us in honoring Sonia Sotomayor by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
