Join with PSR to commemorate Hiroshima & Nagasaki 75th anniversary

This year, the 75th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, PSR is proud to be part of an enormous coalition of 165 organizations that are working together specifically to honor survivors of the bombings—the “Hibakusha”—as we acknowledge that the nuclear weapons, the atomic survivors, and civilization itself are #StillHere. Please participate! So far, PSR’s intrepid summer intern Liberty Potter is tracking 106 US-based virtual and in-person events in 24 states. For ten hours on August 6 and seven hours on August 9, the coalition will broadcast a national livestream which will shine a spotlight on creative projects and local events around the country and amplify the voices of activists and stories of downwinders and survivors. For a wealth of information, including a clickable map of activities, full calendar listings, the list of coalition partners, the Joint Position Statement, Hibakusha Appeal petition in support of the nuclear weapons ban, and a downloadable toolkit for social media, please visit hiroshimanagasaki75.org.
