About Yes Salon International YES is an acronym for Your Essential Self. YES collaborates with many groups in hosting a wide range of live interactive community cultural events, each focusing on a response to the question, “What are you saying YES to?” YES Salon believes that we change the world for the better one YES at a time. The theme for this year’s September event is Say YES to Peace.
“Poems live in our music, our holy books and in our hearts’ says Lael Belove, founder of YES Salon and director of SICA’s Poems for Peace project in Los Angeles. “Poems for Peace is an invitation for city-wide residents and groups within all diverse communities to explore and celebrate what peace means to each of us—to open our hearts through the arts.”
