Oakland, California, United States

The SOPP ceremony in Oakland began with a taiko drum performance, followed by an introduction to this year’s theme of the sacred feminine. Six prayer leaders offered prayers from different faiths and spiritual traditions, after which all participants joined in a flag ceremony for peace in all the countries of the world. Participants were invited to express their vision of world peace, and the ceremony closed with gratitude and gifts of peace dolls.
