All Islanders Gathering As One were able to perform and highlight the contributions of Polynesians towards World Peace. John Nauer the President of All Islanders Gathering As One spoke about the contribution of youth towards World Peace.
San Francisco's Mayor Gavin Newsom was invited but was a no show. It is a shame that the Mayor cannot choose those important events that are important. I suppose his priorities lie elsewhere.
