100 Years of Nonviolence: Gandhi and Sept. 11, 1906-2006

100 Years of NonviolenceOn September 11, 1906, Mohandas K. Gandhi launched the modern non-violent movement by pledging to use non-violence and civil disobedience in his quest for justice. His decision that day changed the course of human history.

To honor the upcoming 100th anniversary, New Yorkers for a Department of Peace and the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence are sponsoring 100 Years of Non-Violence, a campaign that invites citizens around the world to attend and organize screenings of the movie Gandhi on September 11, 2006.

NY-DOP and MKGI are having a short film produced, featuring Arun Gandhi, to be shown before the feature that will help dispel common myths and reveal the true power of non-violence. The short film ( see trailer ) will inspire simple, clear calls to action to educate ourselves, get involved, and “be the change we wish to see” (Gandhi).

You can help promote the event in various ways using resources prepared by the project coordinators.
