Join us for a unique opportunity to hear stories from people whose lives have been changed by the terrible destruction in Hiroshima.
This event will feature: Yukiyo Kawano, a third generation hibakusha (nuclear bomb survivor) and local artist; Fumi Groves, President of the local Hiroshima Club member, incarcerated at a Japanese internment camp, and whose family members died in Hiroshima; Jim Thomas, a life-long peace activist who has traveled to Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and interviews from Hiroshima survivors.
Come learn why anti-nuclear weapons activism is as important today as it was in 1945, and how you can make a difference on this critical issue. Yukiyo Kawano's life-size soft sculpture of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Little Boy, will also be on display.
