Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi — the unassuming world leader who helped free India from British rule while serving as a model of nonviolent activism — will speak in Pacific University's Stoller Center at 7 p.m. Feb. 28. Arun Gandhi, who lived with his grandfather for a couple years as a boy, is a noted peace activist in his own right. Pacific Professor David Boersma met him in 2008 at a conference in New York and invited him to speak at Pacific this year under the auspices of the new Center for Peace and Spirituality, which Boersma directs. The talk, "Lessons Learned from My Grandfather: Non-violence in a Violent World," is free, but tickets are required and can be picked up at the university's box office at 2019 21st Ave.
