Tusli Gabbard, the first Hindu to be elected to the US Congress (from Hawaii’s 2nd District), has initiated an effort to get the US Postal Department to issue a Hindu stamp. Christians, Jews and Muslims have already succeeded in getting their stamps issued, but there has been no Hindu stamp to-date. Let’s help her change that!

Congresswoman Gabbard has requested a Diwali stamp – recognizing the significance of removing the darkness and ignorance with light and enlightenment.

Please help by signing the petition here:

Here is a message from Congresswoman Gabbard:

Aloha & Namaste,
Every year when we get together and we celebrate Diwali, the beautiful Festival of Lights, we’re celebrating the triumph of good over evil, of right over wrong.

Now, a lot of people having been working hard to try to get a Diwali stamp here in the United States, but we need your help.

Please join me in signing this petition so that we can increase the volume of all of our voices all across the country in urging the United States Postal Service to create a Diwali stamp to recognize this special day and to further increase and enrich our nation’s tapestry of religious and cultural diversity.

We need your help. Let’s work together and get it done.
Thank You,

As an additional summer activity for kids, have them write-in a letter requesting the stamp to the Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) – a committee appointed by the Postmaster General that selects subjects for future stamps. Kids can mail their letters here:

Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee
475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Room 3300
Washington, DC 20260-3501
