Global Perspectives Institute schedules Serve 2 Unite

HUNTSVILLE – The Global Perspectives Institute has scheduled a speaking engagement with representatives from Serve 2 Unite.

Randolph Upper School at 4915 Garth Road in Huntsville will host the event at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 30. Pardeep Singh Kaleka, a leader with Serve 2 Unite, will explain the group’s efforts, Suzanne Roten said. Roten serves as Operations Associate with Global Ties Alabama, the parent organization for the Global Perspectives Institute.

Pardeep Kaleka lost his father Satwant Singh Kaleka in a shooting on Aug. 5, 2012 at Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Pardeep now works with Arno Michaelis, a former white supremacist who helped organize a gang in the late 1980s that produced the shooter at the temple.

The Serve 2 Unite program makes the practice of peace an attractive and valuable way of life, transforming schools and communities via fearless creativity and compassion and in interdependent partnership with local and global peace efforts, Roten said.

Serve 2 Unite is a proven means of establishing a healthy sense of identity, purpose and belonging, Roten said. The group diverts young people from violent extremist ideologies, gun violence, school shootings, bullying and substance abuse, along with other forms of self-harm.

Founded in 1965 in Huntsville, Global Ties Alabama helped international military trainees at Redstone Arsenal to feel at home.
