Flame of Hope Supporters

Setsuko ThurlowI support the Flame of Hope Project.

I had the privilege of participating in the start of this project, in the Vatican in March 2019, together with members of the Earth Caravan from around the world and from various interfaith groups, when embers of the Hiroshima Peace Flame were extinguished by Pope Francis to usher in an age without nuclear weapons.

Together with Pope Francis, we renewed our commitment to work toward the realization of a world with Peace and Justice.
