Remember September 11

On September 11, 1906 Mohandas Gandhi convened a meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa, to mobilize his community to oppose racially degrading legislation. That September 11th, more than 3000 people solemnly pledged to disobey the proposed law, despite the consequences, without the use of violence. This fall, Nonviolent Peaceforce invites you to resolve to break the new cycle of violence that began on September 11, 2001.
