Disappeared But Not Forgotten

(Pleasanton, CA)

They forcefully took him away from me. When they killed him, we asked for his body, but they wouldn’t return his body. We should get justice for this type of atrocity.

Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported the third annual 5K walk, Appear for the Disappeared, this past weekend. With your help, we raised $16,365. Help us reach $25,000 by Vaisakhi, April 14, 2015. Now is the time to stand with survivors and take charge of our story.

Participants commemorated people disappeared by Indian security forces from 1984 to 1995 in Punjab. Jagmeet Singh, MPP, spoke after the walk, exhorting the crowd to continue the struggle for justice until we have recorded each survivor’s testimony. AmaSingh enthralled kids and adults alike with his magic.

Thank you for your support!
