"...a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought."

– Taken from the joint U.S.-Soviet statement on the summit meeting in Geneva


Let's remember what happened to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945

and do whatever we can to prevent it from happening again.


#SAVETOMORROWS

We wanted to share with our Voices community an important statement, the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Accord jointly issued by four of the world’s largest interfaith/intercultural organizations, Charter for CompassionReligions for PeaceParliament of the World’s Religionsand United Religions Initiative. They have come together motivated by the urgency concerning the alarming actions of the nuclear nations. Walking away from safeguarding treaties, walking away from verification, modernizing nuclear weapons and threatening to begin testing again, all of which constitute a calamitous threat to the entire world. We feel the statement provides practical and impactful actions that can be taken to lead us toward a world free of nuclear weapons.


Nine key action steps sited in the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Accord will be introduced during the online video presentation. 


The video presentation will feature former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev and former US Secretary of State George Shultz to honor their life-long dedication to nuclear abolition. A Youth Award will be given in their names. Speakers will include; Kazumi Matsui, Mayor of Hiroshima; Tomihisa Taue, Mayor of Nagasaki; former US Senator Sam Nunn; Mohamed Elbaradei, former Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and Nobel Laureate; Beatrice Fihn, Executive Director International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN); Jonathan Granoff, President Global Security Institute; Kehkashan Basu, Winner of the 2016 International Children's Peace Prize, President and Founder of Green Hope Foundation and others.

The presentation will be shown on Facebook, YouTube and various websites.

After you register, you will receive links to all the platforms it will be shown on.
