A practicing Sikh man filed a federal lawsuit this week against Sutter County, alleging the Sheriff’s Office deprived him of his civil rights by failing to adequately investigate a pair of racist hate crimes he says he experienced last year.

A group of Sikh bikers came together in Seminole County Saturday for a charity ride to show support and raise money for the people of Ukraine.

The Sikh Riders of America was created years ago as a way to educate people about Sikhs and their religion at a time when many were the targets of hate crimes. Now the Sikh riders are using their platform to help Ukrainians who are currently under attack.
A variety of religious traditions assembled Sunday evening to pray for one thing: peace in Ukraine.
The meeting at North Presbyterian Church was assembled by the Williamsville Interfaith Clergy Association and was led by two Ukrainian clerics, one Catholic and one Orthodox. Joining them were Presbyterians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Baha'i, Sikh and Unitarian Universalists.
