International Day of Non-Violence

Mahatma Gandhi quote on peace

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) led India to freedom through non-violent civil disobedience. His actions inspired civil rights and freedom movements around the world.

Today is the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. To commemorate all that Gandhi did, October 2 is officially known as International Day of Non-Violence.
