Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki July 21, 2022

Plans are afoot to remember the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 77 years ago on August 6 and 9. Intrepid PSR Nuclear Weapons Abolition Program interns Kylie Jones and Madeline Berzak have been compiling PSR’s calendar of Hiroshima and Nagasaki commemoration events (in-person and virtual) here in the United States. If you would like to share the calendar with others, use  www.psr.org/HiroshimaNagasakiEvents (case sensitive). There are many ways to commemorate these tragedies, and the events this year include live music, candlelight vigils, dedication of a Hiroshima Peace Tree, a children’s peace fair, poetry readings, peace lantern ceremonies, rallies and a commemorative tea ceremony. What do these events have in common? Striving to bring us all back to the center of this mission — to abolish nuclear weapons. Hiroshima/Nagasaki, never again!

Consult the calendar to find an event near you.

PSR is a partner organization in #CranesForOurFuture.
