But we're still working for abolition of all Nuclear Weapons!!
We are so very grateful for the continued support of all the people who attend the annual Peace Events, but we are also eager to reach new people with the message of nuclear disarmament. Last March we promoted the play "Peace On Your Wings" about Sadako Sasaki, by partially underwriting the cost of student discount tickets; we collected many signatures on petitions supporting the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at the showings. The performances were well attended, and by many young people from the Japanese-American community.
Needing to do more, we are contributing to the antinuclear educational work of the Rev. Chelsea Page and Marcus Page-Collonge.
During his current interstate trip to multiple nuclear sites and communities resisting them, Marcus is part of the international peace fast (France, Germany, England, Togo, New Zealand and the USA). There's only four people we know of in the USA doing the fast--even though the whole world is invited to forgo food for four days (Aug 6 - 9).
Marcus' first speaking engagement is scheduled to be in Albuquerque on Friday the 3rd of August, with a talk titled, "Trinity Nuclear Abolition: The Propagation of Prayer Actions" and it includes multimedia memories of past nuclear resistance in New Mexico. It also includes the stories of Sacramento's citizen-sponsored shut-down of Rancho Seco and civilian support for the end of Livermore's nuclear weapons program. Marcus is ready to continue public speaking in churches and schools and elsewhere, upon returning to Sacramento on August 7th.

Thank you for your support of the August Peace Event, which is making this project possible.
