‪#‎UNITEDSIKHS‬ extends its gratitude to Mayor Steve Scaffidi, @OCMayorSteve, of ‪#‎OakCreek‬, USA, for writing “Six Minutes in August: A Story of Tragedy, Healing, and Community,” a book describing his experience during the 2012 shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin that claimed six lives. The book, dedicated to the six victims, chronicles the events of the day from the point of view of a newly-elected leader faced with a horrifying situation. Through this work, Mayor Scaffidi takes an active stand for those impacted by the shooting.

We are further thankful to Mayor Scaffidi for meeting with the Sikh community of Wisconsin shortly after the attack in 2012 to answer their questions and hear their stories, and appointing a Sikh elder from the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin to the city’s Community Development Commission. While the Sikh community continues to reel from the hate-based violence it is too often victim to, leaders like Mayor Scaffidi foster our hope for a safer and more tolerant society in which Sikh voices are heard and valued.‪#‎RememberingOakCreek‬
