A Sikh and former white supremacist find forgiveness after hate.
Who: Pardeep Singh Kaleka and Arno Michaelis

Join us for a powerful event with Pardeep Kaleka and Arno Michaelis, a Sikh and former white supremacist who found friendship after a terrible act of hate. In 2012, Pardeep’s father was murdered, along with six others, by a white supremacist in the Sikh-temple massacre in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. In an effort to understand why someone would commit such a horrible act of hate, Kaleka reach out to Arno Michaelis, a former skinhead and founder of Life After Hate. Life After Hate was designed to teach people about the threat of extreme hate.
At this special event, Pardeep and Arno talk about their journey to promote peace and human kinship after traumatic acts of hate. After the event, there will be an optional 30-minute workshop, Breaking Down Polarization with Compassion.
This special program is part of our current exhibit, Uprooting Prejudice: Conversations for Change. Find out more details and how to visit the exhibit here.
