The GANDHI MEMORIAL SOCIETY (Society) was established on December 17, 2017 to spread the message of truth, non-violence and love given to the world by Mahatma Gandhi. In so doing, the Society also wants to throw light on the lives of other leaders like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela and others who followed into the footsteps of the Mahatma.
Mohandas Gandhi was a leader for Indian civil rights and was the face of India's push for independence from British control. While in South Africa, Gandhi became acquainted with the methods of peaceful resistance and his methods continue to influence people today. Gandhi was the victim of religious violence after India's independence and was assassinated in 1948.
