Arun Gandhi speaks at the Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington, D.C. on the 44th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination in 2012. Gandhi will deliver the keynote address for the 5th annual Giles Symposium for Citizenship and Public Service beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium on the campus of the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha.

Arun Gandhi spent two years during his teens living with his grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi, learning firsthand about the challenges and triumphs of advocating for non-violent change.

These beliefs were directly challenged on January 30, 1948 when an assassin took his grandfather’s life but, from that day forward, Arun Gandhi dedicated his life and passion to ending senseless violence throughout the world.

Gandhi is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at the fifth annual Ray and Mary Giles Symposium for Citizenship and Public Service at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
