Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Creating a Nuclear-Free Future

August 9, 2016 - August 9, 2016
Portland, Oregon

Oregon PSR and partner organizations invite you to join us for Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Creating a Nuclear-Free Future, our 2016 memorial of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016, 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Japanese American Historical Plaza (at NW Naito Parkway and Couch Street at Portland’s Waterfront Park)

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Hideko Tamura Snider, a hibakusha (survivor of the atomic bombing) who made a profound impression at our 2011 commemoration, will be back to share her remarkable story this year. Also joining us will be Unit Souzou, a Portland based taiko ensemble, along with performance artist and educator Chisao Hata. An opening event invocation will be performed by Rev. Dr. Leroy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance and our event emcee will be Lynn Longfellow, Executive Director of Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center.

We hope that you will join us on August 9th in remembering the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and learning more about our work for a world free of nuclear weapons.

Join us, also, for a series of events hosted by the Oregon Society of Artists and co-sponsored by Oregon PSR and Soka Gakkai International (SGI) from July 31st through August 5th. Events include the Everything You Treasure - For a World Free From Nuclear Weapons exhibit, an art exhibit by artist (and third generation hibakusha) Yukio Kawano, and much more.

Please consider making a financial contribution to Oregon PSR to help us organize this event and engage new activists in the movement for a world free of nuclear weapons.
