Hampton Roads Network for Nonviolence, promoting the Season for Peace and Nonviolence

The Season for Peace and Nonviolence, January 30 through April 4, is the period between the anniversary dates of the assassinations of the two great 20th century models of nonviolent activism, Mohandas Gandhi (January 30, 1948) and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (April 4, 1968). Events are presented locally by the Hampton Roads Network for Nonviolence (HRNN).

This international, grassroots event honors Gandhi's and King's visions for healing, transforming and empowering our lives and our communities through the practice of nonviolence.
