As an NGO, the SGI is engaged in concrete constructive efforts to promote nuclear abolition, human rights education and education for sustainable development, in cooperation with other NGOs and UN agencies. For unique historical reasons, the Soka Gakkai in Japan is the main endorsing body for the New Komeito Party, which has a platform of policies aimed at peace, environmental protection and support for the vulnerable. For more information on the nature of the relationship between New Komeito and Soka Gakkai see www.sokaissues.info/home/why-politics.html. SGI organizations outside Japan do not engage in political activities.
