Ask the FBI to Track Hate Crimes against Sikh Americans
Piara Singh and the Sikh victims in Oak Creek deserve the dignity of being counted.
The beating of 82-year-old Piara Singh and the massacre of six worshippers in a Sikh gurdwara (house of worship) in Oak Creek call us to combat hate in all forms against all people. But the FBI does not keep track of hate crimes specifically against Sikh Americans, as it does for many other religious and racial groups.
Now the FBI is finally meeting June 5th to decide whether or not to track hate crimes against Sikh Americans. To make sure they do the right thing, they need to hear from us. Please add your name to the petiton below.
Why should the FBI track anti-Sikh hate crimes?
The Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III, Pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, calls upon all people to stand up and ask the government to track hate crimes against the Sikh community.
