Ela Gandhi, the granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi, will be an honored guest.

This historic gathering will be the first event of the Gandhi-King Global Initiative (GKGI), an effort to build an international network of institutions, organizations, and activists committed to the nonviolent struggle for human rights. This network will seek to enhance the rich history of intellectual and political collaboration between activists inspired by Gandhi and King.
