Teenager Who Beat Sikh American in Chicago Sentenced to Community Service - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America
"Since Mr. Mukker was viciously assaulted last September, we have seen a meteoric rise in hate crimes against Sikh Americans as xenophobic political speech has increased," Harsimran Kaur, legal director of The Sikh Coalition, told NBC News. "Charging the assailant with a hate crime is an important step towards addressing the broader epidemic. We hope that the 200 hours of community service are spent with the Sikh American community in an effort to further educate."
