Last Thursday evening, the Dublin Library hosted a special program as part of United Against Hate Week (November 11-18, 2018). The library held a film screening of Waking in Oak Creek, and then held a community discussion.

One of our teen volunteers attended the event, and wrote the following about the program:

“A few days ago, I attended the “United Against Hate” program that took place here in the Dublin Library. At the event, we watched a film called Waking in Oak Creek, a heartwarming documentary about a community’s effort to support love and peace after a tragic shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

The film was very moving. It told the stories of the friendly Sikh worshipers who were horribly attacked, the brave police officers who came to help, and the supportive community that came together in the aftermath. Rather than focusing on the tragedy itself, the film was mainly centered on the people’s uplifting efforts, leaving us all with hope and positivity.

Once the film was over, we all came together and discussed what steps we could take to support the ideas of love and peace throughout the city. Everyone contributed new and meaningful ideas to the discussion. We hoped by that spreading awareness and by making everyone feel like a part of the community, we could prevent future tragedies and create a safe, peaceful environment for everyone.

In the end, the “United Against Hate” event was a great way to bring people together and to support a positive message. It definitely moved me, and I hope that everyone in the community will take action to support the cause.”
