Pardeep Singh Kaleka

Co-Director & Advisor, Not In Our Town, Hate & Violence Prevention Senior Advisor with The Working Group

Pardeep S. Kaleka is hate and violence prevention senior advisor with The Working Group, co-director of Not In Our Town and a de-radicalization trauma-focused clinical therapist with Parents4Peace. As a first-generation immigrant from India, Mr. Kaleka has spent more than 25 years in the public arenas of law enforcement, education, social services, and assisting hate crime survivors across the United States with recovery. He has also worked on numerous coalition-building efforts across ethnic, racial and religious differences. With a specialization in understanding the impacts of communal trauma, he has developed policies and practices to help mental health workers, social service practitioners, law enforcement agents, and educators build healthier, safer, more inclusive communities.

In 2012, following the death of his father in the hate killings at the Oak Creek Sikh Temple, he founded Serve2Unite, an organization nationally recognized for bridging school and community groups. Pardeep sits on numerous local and national boards dedicated to mental health access, equity concerns, community strengthening and resilience, violence deterrence and hate prevention. He is also the author of, “The Gifts of Our Wounds” and an award-winning columnist with Milwaukee Independent on addressing community health concerns. Pardeep knows that genuine healing must happen both internally and externally and that we all must empower one another to communicate, connect, and create a world that is less hateful and divided.
