To commemorate the 78th anniversary of the sinful and criminal U.S. nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker invites you to attend a prayer vigil and witness on Monday, August 7th outside the Pentagon. We will remember and pray for the victims of these unspeakable nuclear atrocities and all those who have witnessed the destructive power of nuclear weapons use, testing and mining — hibakusha, pacific islanders, Native Americans, downwinders, and all other victims of nuclearism — and call for nuclear abolition.

Meeting point:
Pentagon Protest Zone, Designated Protest Zone on the Southeast Side of Pentagon (Take South exit from Pentagon Metro station — Walk a short distance on sidewalk toward South Parking Lot — vigil site is on left behind bicycle fences.)
