, a learning hub designed to help Americans from all communities understand what happened 10 years ago and how we can take action to prevent further tragedies.
Yesterday, the Sikh Coalition also held a congressional briefing where members of the Oak Creek, Charleston, and Pittsburgh communities--all of which have been targeted in violent acts of hate in the past decade--discussed these and other policy solutions with lawmakers and members of their staff. Featured speakers included Harpreet Singh Saini of Oak Creek, WI; Pastor Eric S. C. Manning of Charleston, SC; Rabbi Jeffrey Meyers of Pittsburgh, PA; Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL); Senator Gary Peters (D-MI); and Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY). Watch the full briefing here.
As a reminder, the Sikh Coalition, SALDEF, and the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee are supporting the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin as they host commemorative events
from August 4 to August 7. These events are open to members of the public, and we encourage you to attend if you are in the area. And finally, we continue to support sangats across the nation as they pursue National Day of Seva projects
to strengthen bonds within their own communities.
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
