The Unequal Impacts of Nuclear Weapons: Hiroshima & Nagasaki Memorial 2019 @ Portland, OR - Japanese American Historical Plaza
Aug 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Please save the date and plan to join us on Tuesday, August 6th for the annual Portland-area Hiroshima and Nagasaki memorial event. This year’s event, The Unequal Impacts of Nuclear Weapons, will explore the disproportionate impacts that nuclear weapons have on women, children, indigenous communities, and communities of color.

Our event emcee will be Kurt Ikeda, Education Manager at the Oregon Nikkei Endowment. We have also confirmed that Michiko Kornhauser, a hibakusha (atomic bomb survivor), will be one of our guest speakers.

More event details will be coming soon, but please mark your calendars and plan to join us on August 6th in remembering the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, learning about the unequal impacts of nuclear weapons, and taking action for a nuclear-free future.

We look forward to seeing you on August 6th!
