SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (AP) - The office of the U.S. attorney for Connecticut will put on a presentation about protecting houses of worship from hate crimes.

The Saturday afternoon event will be hosted by a Sikh temple in Southington.

Federal law enforcement officers and Southington police are going to discuss protection measures. There will also be a screening of a film about the community’s response to the 2012 massacre at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.

Sikhs have faced attacks and vandalism in the wake of Islamic-extremist attacks because Sikhs are sometimes mistaken for Muslims.
