Peace Crane GirlThis August, people around the world will mark the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As part of this commemoration, Upaya Zen Center (located in Santa Fe, New Mexico) and Campaign Nonviolence  call on people everywhere to fold 70,000 paper cranes for peace to be brought to “the cradle of the bomb,” Los Alamos National Laboratory, on Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days during the Campaign Nonviolence Conference Week, August 6-9, 2015.

We invite you and your group to help us reach 70,000.  Click here for more information about how you can get involved!

Campaign Nonviolence supporter Joe Scarry, who works to end nuclear weapons, encouraged his supporters to help fold cranes as well.  See his blog post here!
