Hello,
IAM requests for you to join our Peace March  in memory of Srinivas Kuchibhotla to show our Minnesota community’s solidarity against hate and our commitment to peace and tolerance.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla was killed in an disheartening incident on Feb 24,2017, shot in a sad display of hate. Alok Madasani and Ian Girllow was wounded in the incident that took place in Olathe, Kansas last week.  Ian took gunshots in a very brave and compassionate attempt to protect Srinivas and Alok.
In Gandhiji’s words strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. By coming together with strong will , we hope to raise awareness against hate and  show our solidarity in support of justice and tolerance towards people of all diversities.
