The world is coming together to honor victims
and wish for a brighter future.
As we approach the 76th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, let’s each take one small but powerful step toward building a more peaceful future for all.
The Nuclear Threat Initiative is partnering with Nagasaki Prefecture, Hiroshima Prefecture, and the Hiroshima Organization for Global Peace (HOPe) on a #CranesForOurFuture campaign to spread a message of hope for a future without nuclear weapons. While the world hasn’t suffered a nuclear bombing in 76 years, the risk of nuclear disaster today is higher than it has been in years thanks to evolving and escalating risks posed by terrorists, cyber hackers, artificial intelligence, and a deteriorating arms-control architecture.
So, today, in the spirit of international cooperation, and in honor of those who perished in the bombings in Japan 76 years ago, people from around the globe are coming together to make a powerful, unified statement for a more peaceful and prosperous world.
