The Gandhi King Global Network
The Gandhi-King Global Initiative (GKGI) and Network (GKGN), is led by Dr. Clayborne Carson of The Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University. From Friday, October 11 to Sunday, October 13, 2019, GKGI, commemorated the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth by hosting a major, international Gandhi-King conference.
This conference featured lectures and panel discussions at Stanford University by prominent scholars and activists who discussed the legacies of Gandhi and King in a contemporary global context. Ela Gandhi and Rajmohan Gandhi (grandchildren of Mahatma Gandhi), Martin Luther King III and his family, Anthony Chavez and Juanita Chavez (the grandson of Cesar Chavez and the daughter of Dolores Huerta, respectively), Sister Helen Prejean, and James Lawson were among the honored guests.
This historic gathering was the first event of the Gandhi-King Global Initiative (GKGI), an effort to build an international network (GKGN) of organizations and grassroots groups committed to the nonviolent struggle for human rights. This network seeks to enhance the rich history of intellectual and political collaboration between activists inspired by Gandhi and King.
