June 12, 2022 will be the 40th anniversary of the largest peace demonstration in United States history. In New York City, one million people marched from the United Nations and rallied in Central Park to demand an end to the injustice of the nuclear arms race.

June 12 Legacy is a virtual event to commemorate this historic NYC demonstration and support continuing efforts to rid the world of the nuclear weapons menace. Join us to learn from those who organized the 1982 demonstration, as well as current activists who continue to work for the total elimination of nuclear weapons.

The schedule includes breakout sessions on these topics:

  • Race, Class, and Nuclear Weapons: Links in the Same Chain
  • It Starts in the Classroom: The Importance of Education in the Nuclear Disarmament Movement
  • Climate Change, Nuclear Weapons, and the Future of the Planet
  • Art as Activism, Activism Through Art
