We appreciate that attention was good, with a full house of 60 people.
Topics were how Wada met with abuse discrimination, but coped with it, exceeded it, and kept challenging.

As joint effort with local support we feel supported to keep involved in future activities. Discrimination of minorities and other forms of discrimination should not exist, as we are all human beings.

We want to strive for a society where everyone respects each other and can live together.
