Organizer/Author
On Saturday, September 9th please join the Bay Area Chapter of the Nonviolent Peaceforce in honoring the 100th Anniversary of Gandhi's nonviolence. We will be asking people to make a resolution to break the cycle of violence by using nonviolence, similarly to what Gandhi asked of his community back on September 11, 1906. (See <> for lots of background information.)

We will be gathering to have a potluck picnic at 1051 Bella Vista Avenue in Oakland from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a short presentation around 3:30 p.m. There will be an opportunity to sign a Resolution that will be delivered to the United Nations later in the fall to urge them to explore unarmed peacekeeping as an alternative to armed peacekeeping.
