Day marks the anniversary of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima
August 6th and 9th, 1945. Those two bombs killed over 200,000 people. Each year we remember the victims with reflections, music, and a call to action. The Administration has plans for
nuclear weapons programs, and we urgently need to remind Oregonians and our
lawmakers of the horrific consequences of nuclear weapons. We cannot let the
memory of Hiroshima
fade and allow our leaders to make this grave mistake again.
