A thank you message from Prabhjot Singh:
On Saturday, September 21, 2013, Dr. Prabhjot Singh went for a walk in Harlem after dropping off his wife and one-year old son. He was brutally punched to the ground as his assailants yelled “get Osama” and called him “terrorist.” When bystanders came to his aid, he was rushed to the hospital, his face bloody and bruised, his jaw fractured.
We are heartsick that this happened, but our faiths inspire us to reach out in moments of tragedy, bind wounds, and pray for healing. We, as people of all faiths and backgrounds, send our love and support to Prabhjot and his family. Sign here and add a note with your prayer or message for Prabhjot.
Why is this important?
We’ve seen the healing that’s possible when we come together to combat hate. This attack, pending the investigation, will at least be tracked and monitored as a hate crime by the US government. We did that together.
In fact, Prabhjot – a Columbia university professor, doctor, and community health expert – helped make that possible. In the New York Times last year, he called upon the government “to vigorously combat bias and discrimination against all Americans."
This is our moment to come together again -- to shine a spotlight on Prabhjot's brave leadership and help prevent future attacks with our action.
How it will be delivered
We will deliver all the prayers and messages of love and support to Prabhjot and his family.
