Gandhi brings message of nonviolence to Niagara conference

The grandson of Mahatma Ghandi, Arun Ghandi will address the Compassionate Niagara Conference today.

Now living in Rochester as a self-described "Peace Farmer," Arun Gandhi works to carry on the message of his grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi. "We don't recognize the passive violence we're committing everyday," Arun Gandhi told WBFO in advance of today's keynote address at the Compassionate Niagara Conference. His message will focus on understanding on how passive violence "fuels the fire of physical violence."

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
