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 August 9th outside the White House. 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 place:
Outside the White House on Pennsylvania Ave.(North side)
