‘A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history’ – Mahatma Gandhi

For forty years Mahatma Gandhi led the people of India in a nonviolent uprising against the powerful British Empire. The world had never seen anything like it.

For more than a century brave people across the world have taken a stand against violence and oppression. Their actions have toppled governments, challenged unjust laws, and rebuilt societies. This is the power of nonviolent resistance. This is the legacy of Gandhi.

From individuals like Muhammad Ali, whose refusal to be drafted helped galvanize American resistance to war, to movements such as Argentina’s Mothers of the Disappeared, whose courageous vigils for their missing children contributed to the fall of the military government responsible for the kidnappings, After Gandhi profiles some of the major figures of nonviolent resistance from around the world. These stories will inform and inspire a new generation of activist citizens.
