Season for Nonviolence

Season for Nonviolence was established in 1998 by Arun Gandhi, Mohandas Gandhi's grandson, as a yearly event celebrating the philosophies and lives of Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.[1][2] Today, he co-chairs the Season along with Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith of the Agape International Spiritual Center.[3] It is convened by the Association for Global New Thought.

The "season" begins with the anniversary of Mohandas Gandhi's assassination on January 30 and ends with the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination on April 4. It is anchored by a mission, statement of principles, and commitments by participants towards living in a nonviolent way.[4][5]
