The Gandhian Forum for Peace & Justice seeks to promote dialog and education on some of the greatest challenges that confront the human race in the 21st century: resolving conflicts, eliminating war, and advancing the cause of social justice. We hope that we can help make this campus a place where such conversations flourish, and a catalyst for encouraging engagement with these concerns in the wider community.
