World Peace Haiku Participation

I'm sharing here an invitation to participate in a world peace haiku event:

My name is Kyle Kurihara and I'm an intern with the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California this summer.  This year, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we started a project called Haiku for Peace.  We're asking poets of all levels and backgrounds to write a haiku about peace on a post-it note to be placed on a wall in the JACCC.  The post-it notes will remain on the wall starting this week until September 19.  After September 19, we'll be making copies of the post-it notes to send to Hiroshima and the Emanuel African Methodist Church in Charleston, South Carolina, the site of the June shootings.

We started a facebook event campaign today where you and your members can post your haiku on the event page wall and we'll transcribe your haiku to a post-it note for you. 

Here is our facebook event campaign: https://www.facebook.com/events/157255983
Best,
Kyle
