Nagasaki Remembrance: Stories that Stir and our Work Today

Thursday, August 9 6:15-8 PM EDT. Quaker Welcome Center in Washington, D.C.

Please join FCNL Friend in Washington Diana Roose at the Quaker Welcome Center on Thursday, August 9th as she speaks with Friends about the first interviews of Nagasaki survivors on this day of remembrance for Nagasaki.


Where: Quaker Welcome Center, 245 2nd St. NE, Washington, D.C. 20002

When: Thursday, August 9, 6:15 PM EDT

Diana Roose will share the wisdom of eleven survivors of the August 1945 atomic bombing. Today, these survivors are teachers, artists, poets, doctors, and researchers, and committed advocates for nuclear abolition. This event will highlight Diana’s gifts and leadings, and we hope that it will be another way for Friends to connect with the work of FCNL in nuclear disarmament.

How do we open up our hearts, hear these life stories and reflect on our work today as peacebuilders, pacifists, and Friends of nuclear disarmament? How do we connect this listening and reflection to our efforts to rein in Pentagon spending and promote world-wide nuclear disarmament?

The Quaker Welcome Center is located at 245 2nd Street NE, Washington, D.C. Please RSVP if you plan on attending.
