Past Events

Each year in early August, we mark the anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki through events that include receiving a City Council proclamation, an exhibit, and a film screening followed by a Skype session with peace activists across the globe. In addition, we offer programs throughout the year that educate the public and inspire action. Through our events, we hope to communicate a message of peace in a way that is both creative and dynamic. Click on an image for a larger view and more info.
