The 10th annual Peace Day Hawaii was held on September 16 at the Soka Gakkai International Culture Center. With the theme “Journey for Peace with Aloha: Making Connections,” it offered two floors of informational booths, afternoon workshops and an evening program. We had two tables staffed by Sandy Yee, Ona Lee, Wendy Lynn, Kay Larsen, Kara Wagoner, Jo Schlesinger and Wally Inglis from Campaign Nonviolence. We handed out peace literature from Veterans for Peace, the Campaign for Nonviolence among others as well as information about Honolulu Friends Meeting.

On Wednesday, 9/20/17, six of us attended a Peace Vigil at the Federal Building.  The vigil is related to advocacy efforts by the Friends Committee on National Legislation to encourage members of Congress to curb military spending and divert funds to social programs.
