Such unfathomable and horrifying acts of violence remind us of the shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh place of worship in 2012, which claimed 6 lives. We are deeply saddened to hear of yet another senseless and tragic occurrence.

UNITED SIKHS Chief Operations Officer Amrita Kaur states, “UNITED SIKHS would like to extend heartfelt condolences to the victims, families, friends, and community members that have been affected by the recent shooting in Oregon. Atrocities such as this highlight the need for all of us to work together as a community to strengthen bonds and heal the wounds created from the loss of innocent lives. Every community has been affected by attacks such as the one in Oregon, and further showcases the need for all of us to stand united. “
