Challenge

Most of us are too scared to talk about nuclear weapons, it's not a part of our daily conversation, but we need to wake up. These weapons are shrouded by smoke and mirrors; untruths about why we have to keep them. Why do many of our leaders feel it's okay to decimate; extinguish hundreds of thousands of lives in an instant? And poison our water, air, and soil? And leave those who survived with radiation poisoning that manifests in cancers and birth defects? No one wants this! Not in our name.

Solution

Choirs from Hiroshima & Nagasaki and special guests joyfully come together through the universal language of music to show what happened in the past should never happen again; that a future filled with hope and connection awaits. This is an invitation to create a space where we overcome current fears and call on everyone to build on a collective sense that if fear is banished solutions can be found. Join the Hibakusha and the 10,517,872 others who have already said never again!

Long-Term Impact

Turning the light on and showing people the hope they yearn for has been here all along. Recognizing the futility of spending trillions of dollars to modernize our arsenals and the urgent need to stop using our best minds to work on our mutual destruction. Through this music and our work to bring more awareness, people will be able to imagine a world free of nuclear weapons. So we can move from a narcissistic isolationist world view to that of a more trusting more sharing more inclusive future.
