World non-violence day

Submitted By Sam Rao

In June 2007, the United Nations General Assembly decided to observe the International Day of Non-Violence each year on October 2, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, who helped lead India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

Tri-city residents are welcome to participate in a cultural program on Saturday, October 2 at Cupertino City Hall. Kids can enjoy painting and other arts and craft activities. Those interested in volunteering should contact (510) 228-6417 or visit

Carry the Vision (CTV) has successfully worked to build bridges of peace within our greater community for the last five years. To continue that dynamic work, this year CTV is sponsoring the Community Nonviolence Conference. This event is offered in collaboration with Santa Clara University, and Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, Dave Cortese's Office. The keynote address by Rev. John Dear S.J. will take place at the morning plenary, which will be followed by break out panels, workshops, and discussion groups. Opportunities for dialogue will be supported throughout the event.
