What Can Gandhi Teach Albuquerque in 2016?
Greg Polk, international development advisor, peace advocate, and former Peace Corps volunteer will share his experience of retracing Mahatma Gandhi's historic Salt March. Greg, who lived and worked in India for 5 years, will explore Gandhi‟s legacy and its relevance to the challenges of our times.

Participants will gather after Greg‟s presentation to discuss the lessons of Gandhi‟s Salt March for today‟s peace and social justice challenges and envision a contemporary “Salt March Response” to institutionalized violence in the community and beyond.

Also: poetry with Hakim Bellamy, music with Johnny Alston, Frito Pie and food treats prepared by the Center‟s own Peace Café. Free of charge--donations accepted.
