LA August 8: Unite for Peace and Nuclear Justice

Event Description

Join CODEPINK for the third year of our annual "Unite for Peace and Nuclear Justice - Hiroshima/Nagasaki Never Again!" On August 8, 2019, we will gather in Little Tokyo to commemorate the victims of all nuclear atrocities of the past and present and to take actions to bring our world a little closer to a nuclear-free future.

Among other things, the message that we want to convey at this year's event is "No War with/on Iran." The petition will be delivered to Rep. Jimmy Gomez, for California's 34th District, which Little Tokyo is part of.

There will be a "Give Peace a Chance" sing-along, candlelight procession, and more!!!
