We hope that you will join Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and our community partners for Portland's annual memorial of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 beginning at 6:00 PM at the Japanese American Historical Plaza at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland.

The year’s memorial event, «Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki: From Despair to Hope,» will honor the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, highlight the current state of national and international efforts to abolish nuclear bombs, and provide opportunities for those present to take action for a world liberated from the dangers of nuclear weapons.

Human rights activist and writer Polo Catalani will be the event emcee, Portland Taiko will give opening and closing musical performances, and Oregon PSR Associate Director Sean Tenney will speak regarding the current state of nuclear disarmament, including the recent UN humanitarian ban on these morally reprehensible weapons of indiscriminate destruction.

Immediately following the event, we will proceed to the University of Oregon Portland campus building across the street for a nuclear weapons-themed art exhibition and butoh dance performance led by artist and performer Yukiyo Kawano.
