Seventy-five years after the first nuclear weapons were used, the weapons are #stillhere.
So are the survivors.
We are a group of organizations and individuals working together to mark the anniversaries of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the Trinity nuclear test.
To highlight the voices of those affected by nuclear weapons: the hibakusha, downwind communities, nuclear workers, uranium workers, military personnel, and their families who were exposed to harmful and sometimes deadly levels of ionizing radiation and other toxins.
To press our leaders to take the actions necessary to ensure nuclear weapons are never used again and to negotiate in good faith the global elimination of these most devastating weapons of mass destruction.
The #stillhere movement was an effort surrounding the 75th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There are no longer “get involved” actions for this particular effort, but it’s a great example of a creative action that people can take to draw attention to the fact that nuclear weapons are still a threat. We encourage you to read the stories of survivors that can be found in the link below.
