The Wisconsin Shooting: An Opportunity for America

Title

The Wisconsin Shooting: An Opportunity for America

Files

Description

The Sikh community has dealt with hate and persecution for over 500 years — long before the 9/11 attacks. Representations of hate – like the Wisconsin shooting at a Sikh Gurdwara – will continue until we see each other as an extension of one family, see each other with respect, stand up to hate everywhere and actually live up to the ideals of our Founding Fathers.

Panelists include Rajbir Singh Datta (Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund), Mahar Waheed (South Asian Americans Leading Together), and Erik Love (Dickinson College), moderator.
