Ms. Khydeeja Alam told the Elk Grove City Council during their May 22, 2024, meeting that many Elk Grove residents have lost loved ones during the Gaza-Israel war. | 

During a presentation at the May 22, 2024 Elk Grove City Council meeting recognizing May 2024 as Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Mayor Singh-Allen's response to an honoree's comments implied her support for Palestinians caught in the Gaza-Israel war.

Singh-Allen responded to comments from Ms. Khydeeja Alam, executive director of the California Commission on Asian and Pacific Islander American Affairs (CAPIAA). Ms. Alam said Elk Grove "is home to many who have lost loved ones in Gaza and Palestine" and asked the mayor and city council if "they have showed up in solidarity?"

Last night wasn't the first time Singh-Allen has waded into the conflict. If February, Singh-Allen posted this on X.
