During this congressional briefing, elected officials and their staff are invited to listen to speakers’ remarks and ask questions about various policy prescriptions to reduce the hate violence that has become more and more deadly in the decade since Oak Creek. The Sikh Coalition continues to stand with all communities who have been targeted by mass shootings as well as hate crimes, systemic discrimination, and other forms of prejudice.
This briefing joins a slate of activities the Sikh Coalition is undertaking to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the attack on Oak Creek. In the weeks ahead, we will share information about specific policies that all sangat members can engage their elected officials on in order to honor those lost to hate violence. Additionally, the Sikh Coalition, the Sikh American Legal Education and Defense Fund, and the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee are supporting the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin as they host commemorative events
over the weekend of August 5. And finally, read about the Sikh Coalition’s National Day of Seva
efforts: Sangats in more than 10 cities have already signed on to participate!
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
