Give Peace a Chance 

Arun Gandhi moved his M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence from Memphis to Rochester, New York, earlier this year. But the move didn't stop the peace-loving folks of Memphis from taking the reins of the center's annual conference on nonviolence.

The fourth annual two-day conference is now called the Gandhi-King Conference on Peacemaking (it was previously the Gandhian Conference on Nonviolence), but the setup remains pretty much the same.

Attendees will hear speakers, such as hip-hop journalist Rosa Alicia Clemente and South African peace activist Nontombi Naomi Tutu, and attend workshops and panel discussions.

In partnership with the conference, BRIDGES PeaceJam will allow 300 high school students to participate in a special series of nonviolence workshops targeted specifically for youth.

Kids and adults will come together Friday night for a PeaceJam concert featuring the Tunnel Clones, belly dancers, gospel music, drumming, and more.

Gandhi-King Conference on Peacemaking, Friday-Saturday, October 26th-27th, Christian Brothers University. For more information, go to GandhiKingConference.org.
