To mark the 150th Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, we are holding an informative and commemorative celebration on 17th April 2020 in New York City. The Be the Change NYC Awards are the result of a long process of thought and determination. There is something so very imperative in the message of Mahatma Gandhi and the way it sparked a movement among both Indians and the rest of the world, igniting a fire of active compassion and change that burns to this day, one hundred and fifty years after his birth. The entire event will recognize many notable facets of MG’s legacy, such as Technology, Social Services, Environmental Activism, Peace and Civil Rights, Education, and Business.
We have looked at our diverse and thriving community and decided to recognize some of those who have done extraordinary things over the past few years. We have chosen six distinct areas in which to give these awards, and have elected six people who embody these Gandhian ideals in the 21st century.
