Petition Opportunity: Moment of Silence on August 6

July 29, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

As we approach the 76th anniversary of the bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we have a rare opportunity to utilize the spotlight that is currently focused on Japan for the summer Olympics. Please consider joining with thousands of others in a call to the International Olympic Committee requesting a minute of silence at 8:15 AM on August 6 in honor of the landing of the first atomic bomb and in recognition of the destruction it caused.  The second bomb fell on Nagasaki on August 9.
