A vigil for Tolerance was organized at the Stony Brook University Wang Center where students, community members and interfaith people came together to pray for the victims of shooting massacare at Wisconsin Sikh Temple and Missouri Mosque Burning. Condolences were shared by the presidents of the different faith based student associations and other prominent speakers.

People from all faiths wrote their messages on the “I pledge against hate crime” banner which will be send to Wisconsin to share the messages with the families of the victims and community at large “It is important that we continue the work in Wisconsin as well as pledge for campaign against Hate Crime in every state in US and every major city in the world.” Said mankanwal Singh, Director UNITED SIKHS.
