The Statue of Peace was created to remember and honor “Comfort Women.” An estimated 200,000 to 400,000 girls and women from Korea, Japan, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Dutch East Indies, and beyond who were enslaved during World War II.

The Korean American Association of Greater Philadelphia (KAAGP) proposes to install the statue at 800 S. Front Street, a green space unofficially dubbed ‘The Sanctuary,’ as public art through the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture & Creative Economy.

All aspects of the statue – transportation, installation, and maintenance – will be paid for by KAAGP and will be implemented in concert with QVNA and ILMC (Interstate Land Management Corporation).
