Sacramento August Peace Event: Aug. 6 Memorial of Hiroshima/Nagasaki

The first use of nuclear weapons, against the cities of Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, will be commemorated at the August Peace Event,
Sunday, August 6, at the Secretary of State Auditorium, 1500 11th St
in Sacramento.

This is the 20th year of what has been the August Women's Peace
Event. The featured speaker will be Laura Slattery, the program
coordinator of Engage: Exploring Nonviolent Living, Pace e Bene's
nonviolence training and education program. The Sadako story of "A
Thousand Cranes," based on traditional Japanese folklore, will be
presented by children with Sacramento's InterACT (Interactive Asian
Contemporary Theatre) Group.

The program will also include the Sacramento Taiko Dan, Interact
Theatre, singer Suzan Tobin, the Rev. Seicho Asahi, and other
community activists.

This is a family event with the theme of "Vision of Peace" and all
are welcome. Doors open at 3:30 for light refreshments, networking,
and browsing information tables of area groups. The program will be
from 4-6 pm. There will be an opportunity to take action against the
new nuclear weapons the Bush administration is proposing.

Donations (sliding scale) will be collected at the door. Sponsorships
and tables are available. The event is hosted by the August Peace
Event Committee. Phone 916-685-1130 for more information.
