Support Wisconsin Shooting Victims

On August 5th, 2012, Wade Michael Page, a neo-Nazi white supremacist went into a Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and began shooting at the congregation. Six people were killed and three were critically injured including a police officer, Lt. Brian Murphy. Page died at the scene due to a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

We have all come together as a global community to remember the victims, fight against ignorance and hate and stand united as one. The victims of Page’s bullets have left an impression on each one of us and they will forever be remembered.

Please encourage colleagues, neighbors, and friends to attend community gatherings in your area. This is an important time to spread awareness and educate others. To add a vigil/community gathering to this list, please email events@kaurista.com

Also, please make sure to add #UnitedWeStand to your tweets.
