The Pursuit for Peace is a 15-day cycling fundraiser in support of the Statue of Peace to be installed in Philadelphia.
So Kom will be biking from the DMZ to Busan to raise awareness of the memory of Japanese military "comfort women" and their fight for justice.
The Pursuit for Peace project was created to raise awareness of the history of violence against women worldwide. So Kom is leading a team based in Korea that hopes to raise $150,000 to support the Statue of Peace Plaza Committee through a multi-faceted fundraiser. So Kom will bike over 700 kilometers across South Korea in 15 days, generating high quality photos that will be paired with quotes and stories that offer reflection on “comfort women'' and post-war Korea. These photos will be purchased by supporters in Korea and the proceeds will be forwarded to The Statue Of Peace Plaza Committee in Philadelphia, in solidarity with women who suffer violence worldwide. The mission is to spread messages of justice and peace to future generations around the world.
The Statue of Peace Plaza will be one of the world’s first public spaces dedicated to the memory of “comfort women” and their fight for justice in the long aftermath of war. Join us in making this historic plaza a site of solidarity and education for women's rights and peace.
