Peace Action | Register your Hiroshima and Nagasaki Events Now



From: Paul Kawika Martin | Organizing, Political and PAC Director | Peace Action & Peace Action Education Fund [Formerly SANE/Freeze]


Peace Action has been asked by Alliance for Nuclear Accountability to create a website to keep track of upcoming Hiroshima and Nagasaki events for the wider anti-proliferation and progressive communities.

Please go to:

To register your events directly you may go here.

By registering your events before registration “goes public,” you’ll have the opportunity to advertise to others in your community first. Registration will also benefit you by allowing members of your community who aren’t in your organization to connect with you and attend your event. You will also be able to send out e-invites and search for other events across the country with our new tools. Lastly, registration will benefit the entire movement to end the proliferation of nuclear arms by showing just how many people across the country care about this issue.

Soon, Peace Action will send out to our over 100,000 email lists to invite the public to attend events in the area and we are encouraging other organizations to send to their lists. We are also collecting documents to help people organize their own events.   So please send your documents along to Dave Kunes –dkunes@peace-action.org, who put the site together or 301.565.4050 x 316 | 951.217.7285 cell.

If you have any difficulties, please e-mail our great intern, Dave, at Peace Action & Peace Action Education Fund (formerly SANE/Freeze) | 1100 Wayne Ave., Suite 1020 | Silver Spring, MD 20910-5643.
