Today marks nine years since the killing of six Sikh Americans in a gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. It was a tragic day in our nation’s history. To honor the those we lost, we must recommit to the fight against xenophobia, racism, and gun violence.

It’s a vicious cycle.

“Turns out we’re killing our voters, and our election models for 2022 show that even with all our new voter suppression laws, we can’t win important races if too many of our voters are dead. Our bad. We really wanted to avoid siding with science, but we kinda have to here.” https://t.co/UhfhyYTJ8O
