The M. K. Gandhi Institute (whose offices were built with the help of members of the Little Flower’s fellow co-op, Ant Hill) is taking a strong stand to stop violence in the community, and the media are taking notice:  read the Time Warner feature article here.

Recent instances of violence were addressed at the Institute’s 4th annual celebration this Sunday. Said Institute Director Kit Miller, “We have young people teaching young people,” through the institutes’ nonviolence clubs.

The pilot program in its second year and is offered at select city and suburban schools, where teens are taught and teach each other Martin Luther King’s and Gandhi’s ways of non-violence. The clubs meet weekly.

“We’re getting the kids skilled up and trying to get them to think critically about violence first and getting them to think critically about non violence and getting to understand it as an internal practice, a personal practice and a systemic way of thinking,” explained Miller.
