The VFP Peace Speaking Tour began in 2016 and has been an annual event now celebrating its 6th year. In earlier years it was a live tour with speakers from the U.S. going to cities in Japan focusing on the impact of war. We have been using Zoom to conduct our annual event since last year because of the pandemic.
