From India With Love

June 2017 Washington, DC - New York - Chicago

Indiaspora hosted three special nationwide screenings of From India with Love, a documentary film about six Americans who were all victims of violence and who embarked on an epic journey to India to deepen their understanding of nonviolence.

The group included a single mother whose son was brutally murdered in a tragic school shooting (Sandy Hook, Connecticut) and her best friend, a former gang member (Los Angeles, California), an educator (Newark, New Jersey), a social entrepreneur and a music scholar (both Black Lives Matter activists from Oakland, California).

The film shows how this trip to India renews their spirit and reaffirms their desire to open up a conversation about nonviolence in the United States–specifically, how the practice of nonviolence can be an effective tool in curbing the destructive actions that destroys families, communities and debilitates nations, and that nonviolence starts with conversation that invokes compassion, hope and love.
