A coalition of organizations hosted a national virtual event in August on the 75th anniversaries of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to commemorate the survivors of nuclear weapons and production. Still Here: 75 Years of Shared Nuclear Legacy included highlights from local events, stories from survivors, and a look toward a future free from nuclear threats.
Salt Lake City writer Mary Dickson, a long-time advocate for downwinders and the playwright of Exposed, was a featured speaker at the event. Mary Dickson was recognized by the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility for her lifetime work on behalf of downwinders. She is our guest for the hour today.
