Virtual Hiroshima/Nagasaki Day

August 6, 2020

Oregon PSR and our community partners are in the process of planning the annual Portland-area memorial to the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which this year marks the 75th anniversary of this tragic and preventable loss of human life. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Thursday, August 6th beginning at 6:00 PM for 75 Years Later Is Now: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, & Ending the Nuclear Threat, an online event honoring the lives lost to nuclear weapons and exploring how we, together, can create a world free from the threat of nuclear weapons.
