Sikh Temple Shooting

The East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU) is deeply saddened by the news of the shooting that occurred at a Sikh Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin today. We will be keeping the community of Oak Creek in our hearts and thoughts as further information about this heartbreaking act of violence, that claimed the lives of at least seven individuals, unfolds. Since the tragedy of 9/11, there has been reported over 700 bias-based attacks on Sikhs living in the United States. The resilience, kindness, and strength of the Sikh community reminds us all that as Asian Americans, we must stand together in solidarity and support throughout this time of sorrow.
