Why are you interested in the Gandhi-King Community?
Hello All--
I'm a 22 year-old undergrad studying history at UGA.

I'm hoping to connect with people--particularly in the Atlanta, GA area-- who share similar interests in combating homelessness! Peace!

Hi Esayas,
That's a tough one, trying to reconcile groups that have similar agendas for justice but different ways of approaching their goals. My only suggestion would be to only concentrate on the larger goal (like solving poverty) when you talk to these organizations and not get bogged down in the specifics of what they do. Good luck!

Hi Esayas,
We base our idea of 'global liberation' on the philosophy of Dr. King who advocated for global peace with social justice and international human rights, beyond the civil rights work for African-Americans he is known for. We see the efforts to end colonialism, oppression, segregation, and apartheid in the 20th century as part of a worldwide push for personal and political freedom and human rights. The African-American movement in the U.S. in the 50s and 60s is part of this larger global struggle. So we define liberation as the struggle for freedom by the world's oppressed peoples. Liberation Curriculum builds lessons on social movement history, specifically the African-American movement. What are some of the conflicting definitions of liberation you have come across?
I like that you are working towards making social justice organizations more efficient by bringing similar organizations together and helping them partner and collaborate.
Best,
Ashni
