Lexington: Not In Our Town Event
Activity Description:

Public Community Event

Community Action to Resist Hate

Sponsored by BRIDGES www.MABRIDGES.ORG

As the Sikh community in Oak Creek, Wisconsin prepares for Sunday prayers, a deadly hate attack shatters their lives, but not their resilience. After six worshipers are killed by a white supremacist, the local community finds inspiration in the Sikh tradition of forgiveness and faith. Lieutenant Murphy, shot 15 times in the attack, joins the mayor and police chief as they forge new bonds with the Sikh community. . This film was produced in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice COPS Office as part of the Not in Our Town: Working Together for Safe, Inclusive Communities Initiative.

About Not in Our Town: Not in Our Town is a movement to stop hate, address bullying, and build safe, inclusive communities for all. Not in Our Town films, new media, and organizing tools help local leaders build vibrant, diverse cities and towns, where everyone can participate.
