Gift of Our Wounds: A Not In Our Town interview with Pardeep Kaleka and Arno Michaelis
On August 5, 2012 a white supremacist walked in to the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI and killed 6 people. After the attack Pardeep Kaleka, son of the slain temple president reached out to Arno Michaelis, a former white supremacist. Now, 6 years later, the two are friends and working together to prevent violence. They’ve formed a non-profit, Serve 2 Unite, and recently completed The Gift Of Our Wounds, a book about their backgrounds and experiences since the Sikh Temple shooting. In today’s podcast, Not In Our Town Founder Patrice O’Neill sits down with Pardeep and Arno to discuss their new book and share their stories.
United Against Hate
When members of white supremacist groups began a campaign to hold rallies in Berkeley and Oakland, California, a group of community leaders came up with a way to make a statement that neo-nazis, their hatred and their ideas were not welcome in the East Bay. For the first episode of our new podcast, Not In Our Town gathered the organizers of the poster project at our office in Downtown Oakland to talk with them about their poster project.
