Welcome to the Los Angeles Friendship Center Website
The center was a gift from the Soka Gakkai International membership, with the support of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda. SGI-USA members in Southern California use the facility primarily for Buddhist practice and study.
In addition to its primary use, SGI-USA, along with neighborhood associations, promotes activities based on peace, culture, education and art. Many events cover interesting topics such as Human Rights, Non-Violence, Relationships and Self Transformation. These events are generally open to the public at no cost, and often include guest lecturers, and various programs for youth.
