Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi is perhaps one of the most revered nonviolent leaders in the world. He led the movement for the independence of India from Great Britain and his peaceful protests have since become the framework for nonviolent civil disobedience around the world. He led nationwide peaceful movements and campaigns for the eradication of poverty, expanding women’s rights, ending untouchability and establishing Swaraj. The memory of Gandhi and his form of peaceful civil disobedience lives on, inspiring and giving hope to marginalized communities around the globe.
