On Sunday the Sikh community of Bakersfield will be commemorating the five-year anniversary of a mass shooting that took place at a Sikh place of worship in Wisconsin.

Sikh leaders will donate and prepare meals at the Bakersfield Homeless Shelter, all day, to honor the lives taken.

Leading this event is a local motorcycle-oriented nonprofit called the Sikh Riders of America. This organization was founded after the shooting occurred in 2012.

Bakersfield will join over 20 cities across the country in honoring the lives impacted by the shooting.
