A Desire For Peace

Victory Over Violence
A "Victory Over Violence" Parade of the SGI-USA in Santa Monica, California

Peace is more than just the absence of war. The SGI seeks to cultivate a culture of peace through a variety of educational activities such as exhibition showings and the holding of seminars and workshops.

The Soka Gakkai in Japan has conducted signature campaigns for nuclear abolition and collected wartime experiences. 80 volumes of such accounts and 20 volumes of women’s testimonies have been published to help ensure that future generations do not forget the misery of war.

Initiatives around the world include the "Victory Over Violence" campaign in the USA, whereby youth go into shools and communities to conduct workshops on nonviolence, youth peace forums in Argentina, ans the setting of a group of youth peacebuilders in Venezuela. Women's peace forums have been held in Australia, Malaysia nad in Singapore, often bringing women together from throughout Asia. A new exhibition entitled "Building a Culture of Peace for the Children of the World" was first shwon at the UN Headquarters in New York in 2004.
