Nagasaki bomb

nuclear explosion

Atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.

Since August of 1945, AFSC has consistently worked for the abolishment of nuclear weapons world-wide.  Within two weeks of the August 6, 1945 bombing of Hiroshima, AFSC condemned the explosion as a ’new low of  inhumanity.’  Over the years AFSC has made statements, organized marches, made movies, and distributed informational materials trying to convince people and governments around the world to stop the development and build-up of these senselessly destructive weapons.

In 2010, AFSC continues to work for a nuclear free world. As part of a coalition of organizations from around the world, AFSC is sponsoring a conference in New York, with a keynote speech to be delivered by United Nations Secretary General Ben Ki-moon.
