Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki July 22, 2021

On August 6 and 9, there will be several events in Hiroshima and Nagasaki to commemorate the 76th anniversary of the atomic bomb attacks. Intrepid PSR Nuclear Weapons Abolition Program interns Kathleen Caldwell and Racheal Khan have been compiling PSR’s calendar of Hiroshima and Nagasaki commemoration events (in-person and virtual) here in the United States. These events include presentations, trainings, live music performances, peace lantern ceremonies and film screenings. What do these events have in common? Striving to bring us all back to the center of this mission—to abolish nuclear weapons so that what happened in August, 1945 in Japan will never happen again. Consult the calendar to find an event near you.
