Burr

Postcard to Ghandi

You have heard of a man named Mohandas Gandhi who is starting a movement to fight for India’s independence and for the equal rights of all citizens. As an untouchable, this news makes you very happy to hear. Gandhi will be meeting with a group of untouchables to hear what you have to say about how you have been discriminated against. He is going to use this information to help fight for your equality. What will you tell him? Create a postcard telling Gandhi about your experiences as an untouchable (how you have been discriminated against) and what having equal rights would mean to you.

Use the following link to create your postcard – PostcardGandhiTemplateBurr
