Oak Creek Sikh Temple shooting victims to be honored at White House
AK CREEK — A candlelight vigil is planned at the White House Wednesday evening, August 8th to honor the six killed during Sunday’s shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.
Wednesday’s White House vigil is organized by “Unite Against Hate.”
The vigil will be a night of remembrance and reflection — where the public plans to stand against religious intolerance and insanity of mass shootings.
The vigil is planned from 6:00 to 9:00 Wednesday night on the north side of the White House at Lafayette Park.
According to a Facebook event, another candlelight vigil at the White House is scheduled for Sunday, August 12th.
That vigil is also planned for the north side of the White House at Lafayette Park, and scheduled from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
Organizers are looking for donations in the form of bottled water, candles, plastic cups, banners and monetary funds, and are also looking for volunteers.
The organization “Sikh Activist” on Twitter released a map showing vigils planned and held for the Sikh Temple shooting victims across the nation.
