"What Would Gandhi Do?" with Dave Lewit

When: Sunday, October 22, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

With Americans and the world facing climate or nuclear doom, and with irresponsible corporations in charge, can we the people get it together to save us all? Or are we looking for a new savior to point the way? Because Gandhi’s experience was close to our times, and because he helped liberate 400 million people (with questionable results), can his non-violent, spiritual-political approach work in the USA? Let’s explore this, considering the difficult role of empathy in positive power.

Dave Lewit is a social psychologist and democracy activist with university teaching and research background. Known to some CCB members as editor of BCA Dispatch (see, he has organized forums, roundtables, and symposiums for regional autonomy and for broader system transformation. Asked his religion, he has replied "Gandhian".
