2nd Annual All-S2U Peace Summit
On August 5th, 2012, Paramjit Kaur, 41; and five men: Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, the founder of the Gurdwara; Prakash Singh, 39, an assistant priest; Sita Singh, 41; Ranjit Singh, 49; and Suveg Singh, were murdered by a white supremacist. 65-year-old Punjab Singh remains in a coma. The SIkh community launched Serve 2 Unite in response. Since then, S2U has become an ongoing engine of peace and cooperation, bringing people from all ethnicities, nationalities, spiritual traditions, sexual orientations, ages, and genders together in a fearlessly creative celebration of friendship, understanding and service to others.
On March 30th, 2015, S2U Student peacemakers from 15 schools across Milwaukee, grades 2-12, along with educators, parents, community orgs like Running Rebels Community Organization, Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort, Arts @ Large, The Forgiveness Project, Against Violent Extremism, S2U Global Mentor Dydine Umunyana, Pabst Theater and Milwaukee Turners, musicians R.A.S. MOVEMENT, academic partners Marquette University Future Milwaukee and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Institute of World Affairs-Center for International Education, in partnership with the Milwaukee Police Department S.T.O.P. Program and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett–all gathered to pack historic Turners Ballroom in a celebration of fearless creative expression and interdependence. We worked together to bring wonderful artistic intentions of love to life, and to heal the rift between our community and our Police. Huge thanks also to our MC’s John and Ericajoy Daniels!!
This is how we respond to hate crime.
