AN INVITATION TO EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TO CELEBRATE PEACE & NONVIOLENCE TOGETHER ACROSS AMERICA

Join 1,000 Schools, Colleges and Universities across the United States to collectively pledge for Peace & Nonviolence by organizing a #Gandhi150 Event at your Educational Institution.

Dear Peacebuilder,

Peace has taken a back seat in today’s violence dominated world – from drug overdose to domestic violence, from suicides to mass shootings and global terrorism. 

Our schools and educational institutions are also facing this rising epidemic.

Decades ago, Mahatma Gandhi had demonstrated to the world that with inner strength and resilience, Nonviolence can be used as a weapon to fight social injustice, prejudice and hatred.

On the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, let us unite to amplify our voices to reinvigorate Nonviolence and Peace.
