International Institute of Wisconsin Extends Condolences and Promotes Understanding and Acceptance of Cultural Differences
The International Institute of Wisconsin (IIW), an organization dedicated to the promotion of international cooperation, understanding, and a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural perspective, extends our thoughts and prayers to the victims, their families, and the Oak Creek community, following Sunday’s shooting rampage.
“It is one of our foremost goals to promote multi-cultural understanding throughout the community,” said Al Durtka, President of the IIW. “We are saddened that a group of people whose religious beliefs encompass truthful living, equality of mankind, and social justice, were targeted in their place of worship, their Gurdwara.
“Now more than ever, our community needs to sustain and extend the spirit of understanding and friendship across the many different cultures that make up the Milwaukee metropolitan area,” Durtka said.
