Join us in marking the anniversary of the 1945 nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Each
year we remember this history with reflections, music, and a call to action. In doing so, we hope to
prevent such a grave mistake from happening again.
Sixty-four years ago on August 6th and 9th 1945, the United States dropped the first nuclear
bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. More than 200,000 civilians were killed in these
and countless survivors continue to suffer from the effects of the bombs.
Diverse community organizations
request your presence at the annual
Hiroshima Ceremony on August 6th.
This event will highlight movements on multiple fronts
from city mayors, heads of state, the United Nations and grassroots activists.
Add your voice, energy, and effort to
accomplish A Nuclear-Free Future.
