Pardeep Singh Kaleka is a licensed therapist, specializing in utilizing a trauma-informed approach to treat survivors and perpetrators of assault, abuse, and acts of violence. A native of Punjab, India, Pardeep grew up in Milwaukee. As a former police officer and educator in the city of Milwaukee, Pardeep understands the difficulties our communities face, both locally and abroad. Both in and outside of his practice, Pardeep’s passion remains one of healing and recovery. An example of this is Serve 2 Unite, an organization he founded in response to tragedy. This organization engages youth and communities at large in service learning, artistic response, and global engagement to build positive school environments and peaceful communal identity, ad- dressing conflict from a trauma-informed lens. Over the past five years, the work of Serve 2 Unite has been locally and internationally recognized as the recipient of the Guru Nanak Award and the Parliament of World Religions for the work of building safe, inclusive communities. Partnership organizations include Arts@Large, Against Violent Extremism, the Forgiveness Project, Interfaith Council of Milwaukee, and Not In Our Town.
