Member Guide: How to Use the Gandhi-King Community

The goal of the Gandhi-King Community is to create an enduring global network of dedicated, nonviolent social-change agents. We hope that the site will be useful for you to connect with people, projects, and ideas related to social change.

Above is an example of an effective profile page. Click the image to view this page.

To that end, we encourage you to share as much information about yourself as possible. An effective network requires a degree of trust. When each member shares about themselves, members can relate to one another and make connections. Specifically, your profile page should provide your:
  • name
  • place of residence
  • photo
  • interests
  • relevant activities
  • organizational affiliations

Tip: Use a simple password for your account that you won't forget!

  • Join or create a group
    • The purpose of the group function is to create smaller networks of people who share a specific interest, occupation, or project idea.

The group connects members with resources to help them teach social justice.
