The Hiroshima Nagasaki Commemoration Committee offers these events to the community to encourage reflection on the past and hope for the future through action in the present. It calls for the total abolition of nuclear weapons throughout the world as one measure of ensuring a just and lasting peace.

Support from Veterans for Peace, Chapter 27, Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) and the Saint Paul – Nagasaki Sister City Committee.

Reflection on the Past. Action in the Present. Hope for the Future.
