Hundreds of people gathered at Monona Terrace on Sunday, Dec. 10th to hear a powerful, inspirational message from Pardeep Kaleka and Arno Michaelis, both advisory board members of We Are Many – United Against Hate and founders of Serve2Unite. Their stories began in very different places, but were brought together in the aftermath of the mass shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI in 2012. Together they shared with Madison an incredible story of heartbreak, forgiveness, compassion, and resolve.
