United Against Hate Film and Discussion: Waking in Oak Creek

Come see a documentary about how a community worked together to overcome tragedy, stand up to hate, and create a safe town for all, after worshipers at a Sikh temple were killed by a white supremacist. A guided discussion afterwards will help people reflect on the film and current events.

"Waking in Oak Creek" depicts the year following a tragic hate crime at a Sikh temple in suburban Wisconsin, as thousands gather for vigils and community events to honor the victims and seek connection. Together, a community rocked by hate is awakened and transformed by the Sikh spirit of relentless optimism. 

The documentary is 35 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion led by a representative from Jakara Movement, a grassroots community building organization.
