(New York, NY July 14, 2016) – As the fourth anniversary of the tragic Oak Creek, WI shooting nears, sangat members across the nation are coming together to join in National Day of Seva.
On August 13-14, as the nation will be holding the fourth annual National Day of Seva (selfless community service), the Oak Creek sangat is organizing their annual Chardhi Kala 6K Memorial Walk and Run, which will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2016, in Oak Creek, WI. We strongly encourage the community to attend the 6K walk/run, and to participate in the blood drive hosted by the Oak Creek sangat if you can get there.
For those who cannot attend the walk/run in Oak Creek, the Sikh Coalition is honored to host National Day of Seva on the weekend of August 13-14, 2016 so communities across the nation can show their solidarity with all those impacted by hate crimes. Community leaders in Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Sacramento, New York, Orlando, Detroit, and Charlotte are organizing seva events in their cities. Can we count on you to organize one in yours?
If you have any questions about organizing a National Day of Seva event in your city, please email our Community Development Manager, Harjit Kaur, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
