About Us

The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence is a nonprofit that works torealize the vision of its historic namesake by helping individuals and communities create public awareness of nonviolence as knowledge critical to human thriving. We collaborate with local organizations, academic institutions, students and committed peacemakers in the following areas: nonviolence education,sustainability and environmental conservation, and the promotion of racial justice. We prioritize programming for people between the ages of 12 and 24 as well as those who serve those age groups.

The Institute continuously offers groups and individuals training in skills such as Nonviolent Communication (NVC), self-reflection, meditation and experiential interconnectedness, and fosters sustainability practices in the Rochester area such as community gardening, urban agriculture and restorative approaches to conflict.
