Season of Peace and Nonviolence, Jan. 30 through April 4

The Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence (SNV) commences TODAY on January 30, in cities across the globe. The annual 64-day campaign is an educational, media and grassroots awareness campaign spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The purpose of the campaign is to focus educational and media attention on the philosophy of attaining peace through nonviolent action as demonstrated by legendary leaders Mohandas K. Gandhi, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar E. Chavez, and President Nelson Mandela, as well as living legends such as His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Spiritually guided citizen leaders in 900 cities in 67 countries have participated since the campaign began in 1998.

HREI will use The Living Peace Mandala during the Season of Nonviolence as an interactive social media icon meant to be used for reflection, contemplation, and meditation. Each day there will be a new posting for peaceful reflection on a higher way to live in consciousness. We hope you enjoy these daily quotations, affirmations and practice models.  Facebook:  HumanRightsCDA
