This week marks the 74th anniversary of the atomic bomb attacks of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The attack killed more than 210,000 people, and left devastating health consequences for many more.

This kind of indiscriminate death and destruction should never be unleashed again,” said Christy Hoffman. ”We stand with the people of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the world in demanding an end nuclear arms—especially in this time of growing insecurity and tension.”
