The World House Project: Stanford University
The World House Project is part of the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law, Stanford University.
The Dais is proud member of The World House Global Network since 2020.
The World House Project works to realize Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of the world as a large house in which "we must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.” We combine educating on human rights and nonviolence with building an active global network. Through education and the network, The World House Project provides the world with empowering resources and strategies that engender solidarity among all peoples to realize King’s vision.
Building a better world together.
Educating on human rights and nonviolence is one of the main pillars of The World House Project. Building on the work of the Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, notably the King Papers Project and the Liberation Curriculum, we develop innovative and authoritative educational resources. Our goal is to build solidarity and grow the sense of community among all people defending human rights nonviolently and realizing King's vision of peaceful coexistence in the World House.

The World House Global Network (WHGN),
Formerly, Gandhi-King Global Network (GKGN)
The World House Global Network (WHGN), previously known as the Gandhi-King Global Network (GKGN), is led by Dr. Clayborne Carson, the founding director of The Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University. The network was founded during the international Gandhi-King conference, which took place at Stanford University in October 2019, commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth.
Prominent scholars and activists convened to discuss the legacies of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., in the contemporary global context. Ela Gandhi and Rajmohan Gandhi (grandchildren of Mahatma Gandhi), Martin Luther King III and his family, Anthony Chavez and Juanita Chavez, the grandson of Cesar Chavez and the daughter of Dolores Huerta, respectively, Sister Helen Prejean, and James Lawson were among the honored guests.
During this historic gathering, conference organizers and participants launched GKGN, now the World House Global Network, in an effort to build an international network of organizations and grassroots groups committed to the nonviolent struggle for human rights. This network seeks to enable and support the collaboration between all people inspired by Gandhi, King, and the power of nonviolence.
