NAACP Ozaukee County Branch welcomes Arno and Pardeep as they share their story and lead a discussion about forgiveness, trauma, and purpose.
Free and open to the public – middle-school, high-school, and adults are encouraged to attend.

After the tragic 2012 massacre in Oak Creek, WI Pardeep Kaleka, son of murdered Sikh temple leader, and former white supremacist Arno Michaelis started on a journey of forgiveness.
