Candlelight Commemoration of
The 100th Anniversary of
Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha
(Nonviolent Peace Army Holding Fast to Truth)
We will honor Gandhi’s devotion to nonviolent action, reminding ourselves and our community of our inherent right to peace, and of this powerful alternative to war and violence. We will help each other find the courage to work nonviolently towards achieving justice and peace in our own daily lives, in our local communities, and in the whole world.
