What is the focus of this conference?

The conference theme is:

Living Our Vow: Ushering in an Era of Hope and Respect

This conference will focus on our vow for peace through dialogue and education. There has never been a more important time for dialogue in society than now. At this conference we will come together to find ways to celebrate our culture and better ways to share it with others.

Come join us as we celebrate our culture and renew our vow for kosen-rufu with Sensei! Together we will explore ways to rejuvenate our faith with our SGI family and discuss how to restore hope and realize justice in our community toward the 50K Lions of Justice Festival and beyond.
