“The Sikh Coalition was honored to be a part of the commemorations around this important milestone,” said Rucha Kaur, Sikh Coalition Community Development Director. “We thank the local sangat for welcoming us and so many others for a deeply meaningful weekend, and sangats across the country for doing their part to help all Americans remember and honor Oak Creek.”
In addition to the events in Oak Creek, more than 20 cities across the nation participated in the Sikh Coalition’s National Day of Seva or National Night of Vigil programming. Participating sangats included those in Detroit, MI; Charlotte, NC; Fairfax, VA; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Bellingham, WA; Lawrenceville, NJ; Salt Lake City, UT; Indianapolis, IN; Dayton, OH; Cincinnati, OH; Asbury Park, NJ; Orangevale, CA; Salem, OR; Enola, PA; San Antonio, TX; Federal Way, WA; Albuquerque, NM; East Greenbush, NY; Olathe, KS; Oakland, NJ; Lexington, KY; Lenexa, KS; and New York, NY. We extend a warm thank you to all of the incredible sevadaars who facilitated their sangat’s participation in projects to clean up community parks, host food drives, provide meals to homeless shelters, and more.
