For children, the events can cause a range of emotions. The idea that Sikhs were killed in the Gurdwara could effect their sense of safety, cause confusion or leave them upset. The guidelines are a first step in how to engage your children. Additional resources are available if you need more help or are not sure what to do.
In addition, the organizations are collaborating on the ground in Oak Creek to help provide resources for the needs of the local community in Oak Creek. If you are a trained professional local to the area, and interested in helping out, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
