Thousands of you responded to the shooting at the Sikh temple last summer in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, by writing messages of love and support to the Sikh community there. Anytime there is an act of violence targeting people because of their identities, we can and should reaffirm a message of love and a vision of a country where we all belong.
In that spirit, Standing on the Side of Love is gathering a network of people to send messages surrounding victims of violence with an outpouring of love whenever incidents of hate occur. From the shooting in Oak Creek to the arson attack on a mosque in Joplin, we can ensure that victims of senseless acts of hate know that they are loved.
Fill out the form below to sign up. We’re also searching for inspiring names for our response network, or “love team” and would love your help. Love Ambassadors? The Love Squad? What helps us best convey that we are here in spirit with those affected by a tragedy? Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
