ABOUT GANDHI BRIGADE
Mission: We help young people realize their inner and collective power to become the champions of the common good.
Vision: We envision a radically diverse network of youth and adults who are united in their commitment to fight for the empowerment of all people through the Gandhi principles of nonviolence, awareness, and common effort.
Method: We offer young people opportunities to use the media arts as a developmental path for personal and community growth. First we teach them how to create effective media messages. Second, we invite them to investigate power and privilege. Third, we create opportunities for them to apply these abilities, in collaboration with allies, toward practical common good projects.
