Rochester, N.Y. – The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence opened on Sunday after 19 months of repairs and preparation.
The house was vacant for over 17 years and has being renovated for the last 19 months.
Kit Miller, who services the director for the Institute for nonviolence says, “The institute is focused primarily on non-violence education in the community, not so much the historical aspects of Gandhi and King but more focused on what does non-violence mean in our lives today.”
The funds for the renovation were provided through fundraising.
