following the wake of the tragic murders of two turban-wearing elderly Sikh
men, and motivated by California State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg’s (D-Sacramento) call for a “Sikh Day”, the Sikh community sought
to reach out, build understanding and educate non-Sikhs about their culture
and 100+ year history in California. offering their services pro bono, Wayne
Johnson and his team developed a robust press strategy inviting reporters
and cameras to the homes of individual Sikh families for dinner. This was
such a unique opportunity for opinion leaders in which they could engage a
Sikh family in the family’s home. They created a virtual online media infor-
mation kit providing each reporter with family background, Sikh historical
and cultural information and establishing context. This entire education and
awareness campaign was an unqualified success.
