“Let youth lead” when it comes to non-violence urges expert

2 October 2017

“We are built for peace, but we are trained for violence”.

That’s the assessment of one expert who came to UN Headquarters in New York on Monday to help mark the International Day of Non-Violence.

Kit Miller is the Director of the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Non-Violence and she’s spent years working on the ground with young people whose lives have been affected by violence.

Her vocational path was grounded in personal experience, when she decided to stay at home with her children, to help erase her own childhood scars.

She shared her story and her reasons for coming to the UN, with Agnese Pastorino.
