Peace Symposium

Peace Symposium

Today with our assistance our Japanese client SGI held a Symposium at the United States Institute of Peace entitled: Making a Difference Faith: Based groups and the Humanitarian Impact  of nuclear weapons.

Since 1957  SGI which is an 8 million member lay Buddhist organization in Japan has promoted the abolition of nuclear wepaons.

Eleven different faith based groups endorsed a statement to be present to the Preliminary Conference of the Non-Proliferation Conference next week at the UN in New York. The leaders of SGI met with State Department officials and armed control advocacy organizations.

Today’s Symposium included two panel discussions and two key note addresses exploring the true consequences of the denotation of nuclear weapons ad what faith based groups can do about it

We are very proud to have played albeit a small part in the success of this program
