General PRC events
Aug: Nuclear-Free Future
August 6th & 9th are the anniversaries of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Since 2006, United for Peace & Justice has declared August as Nuclear-Free Future Month regarding nuclear power and weapons (www.nuclearfreefuture.org). Each year, we recall the history and find some way of connecting with the public around peace and nuclear issues. Events have ranged from hosting film discussions and guest speakers to sharing the story of Sadako and folding peace crane origami.
Current Exhibit on Display at the PRC – a series of historical documents commenting on the bombing of Hiroshima by the US.
Curated by Dr. Jeoffrey Gordon.
Sept 21: International Day of Peace and Peace Week
This is another day that we enjoy recognizing and promoting to the public. It was established by the United Nations in 1981. Then in 2001, it was updated to occur on September 21st each year and to “be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence, an invitation to all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day” (www.un.org/en/events/peaceday).
