Sunday August 4, 2013
St. John's Lutheran Church
1701 L Street, Sacramento.
Please plan to join us Sunday, August 4th, for a very special observance of the August Peace Event. For 27 years, we have gathered to remember the tragic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima and to renew our dedication to the abolition of nuclear weapons. The importance of this work continues, as the US and other nations still commit vast amounts of resources to weapons development, while failing to stop the spread of nuclear weapons.
The planning committee has prepared an inspirational family program with music, the telling of the story of Sadako and the Thousand Cranes, and an opportunity to take action against nuclear weapons.
This year we are proud to have Marylia Kelley as our speaker.
co-founder and executive director of Tri-Valley Communities Against a
Radioactive Environment (Tri-ValleyCAREs), the 30-year strong
Livermore-based nuclear watchdog organization.
Our theme this year is A Nuclear Threat in Our Backyard. Marylia
will share her decades of experience monitoring the Lawrence Livermore
Nuclear Weapons Laboratory, stopping the further development of nuclear
bombs and preventing radioactive pollution in our California air, land
and water. She will also offer a positive vision of a “Green Lab”
that would enhance our environment rather than threaten it. Come and
learn more about the role that Sacramento area residents can play in
making these momentous changes happen!
We anticipate a wonderful afternoon and hope that you and your family and friends can join us Sunday, Aug. 4th, from 3-5pm at St. John's Lutheran Church, 1701 L Street, Sacramento. Parking on the street is free and there is a small parking lot at the church.
For the sake of future generations, we must continue to work together to realize a world without nuclear weapons. Be part of that world...join us!
