YOUKO YAMAMOTO

Founder / Producer of

Bon-odori Dance Festival For Peace

 "No matter where we came from, we have been through some kind of war fare. Nuclear war is no exception. Education is important for their earth to be free of nuclear war and nuclear energy and to understand the dangers that would be for our earth, water and sky."

           

Donna Coane
 

"I want to help create a community where we can openly interact with people of different race, age, background, social status, and where we can understand one another beyond our differences.  I believe that making real human connection is the first step towards war-free world"

Sakura Kojima

"Through the cultural events that bring our community together, I hope to share the importance of no nuclear solutions for our Mother Earth and act upon on our daily practice to make a bigger awareness. Truly agree with Patti Smith - “People have the power."

Chiaki Hara Shulman

"I believe in the radiation-free future that can be achieved by withdrawing Nuclear Weapons and replacing Nuclear Power with renewable energies.

Please join us for the festival and find out what each of us can do to live healthy, peaceful, green lives.  Let's dance together for the solutions."
