Do you have a vision of peace? A desire to connect and engage
in creative effort with others who share an active commitment
to peace? Sponsored by the Women's Coalition for Peace, this
conference is the christening assembly of an international
network of individuals and organizations committed to creating
peace in our world now.
The sole requirement for participation is this commitment and
willingness to share your own vision of peace. Inspiring and
supporting each other in manifesting our dreams, we will build
a synergy of movement to carry our passions and ideals into
the world. With practical skills and long-lasting alliances
developed in presentations and group activities, you'll
return home empowered to claim and live your peace.
OneVoice honors its local birth place with traditional
Hawaiian opening ceremonies of chanting and music. Then
recognizing our global reach, we'll focus our collective
energies on creating new images and messages of peace
that will have the greatest immediate impact.
