For the survivors, the dropping of “Little Boy? and “Fat Man? wrenched apart our lives and altered forever the generations to follow. For those who witnessed from afar, still we carry the memories of those two deadly bombs. For many of us born after 1945, those devastating events are legacies that we’ve inherited and that inhabit our imaginations. Help heal the profound disruption caused by the dropping of the first atomic bombs that still resonates on the earth and in us. We invite you to bring your memories and experiences of living with nuclear weapons to share at the commemoration ceremony. Then let us re-member together a vision of a truly just and peaceful world.

This event is organized by the Santa Cruz Weapons Inspection Team. Its purpose is to bring about change by speaking out about what we value, what we affirm, what we envision. Groups participating include children from the Jane Addams Peace Camp, the Pacific Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), the Junior Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), the Raging Grannies, SCWIT, Earth Justice Ministries, Santa Cruz branch of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), Nuclear Abolition Committee, Art and Revolution
