One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.

Satyagraha is a concept developed by Gandhi as a philosophy and method of non-violent resistance or civil disobedience. It is based on the idea that individuals have the power to bring about change through non-violent means, such as civil disobedience and non-cooperation.

Satyagraha is composed of two Sanskrit words: 'satya,' which means truth, and 'agraha,' which means firmness or insistence.

Satyagraha can be best defined as 'insistence on truth,' 'loyalty to the truth,' or 'truth force.'

Satyagrahi leadership is designed to create leaders who are able to address the world's most pressing dilemmas, including poverty, immigration, crime, violence, divisiveness, environmental issues, and the loss of democracy.

Azim Khamisa is an author, speaker, and activist who, after losing his son Tariq to a gang shooting, founded the Tariq Khamisa foundation to promote nonviolence.

Khamisa is the recipient of multiple awards, such as the California Peace Prize, and the author of books such as Murder to Forgiveness and The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit.

As described in Khamisa's book Leadership for the Greater Good, Satyagraha leadership is designed to cultivate a full spectrum of competencies and innovative solutions needed to address complex social problems in today's cultural context.
