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 (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.
