Peace Pole Initiative

Lonnie Bristow, M.D., a member of the Board of Directors, is leading The Peace Pole Initiative. The Peace Pole Project was founded in 1955 by Masahisa Goi in Japan after the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima. The Interfaith Peace Project planted our Peace Pole on September 1, 2009 and we are promoting The Peace Pole Project in homes and communities in Contra Costa County. Lonnie is an award-winning physician and is a former President of the American Medical Association.
