On the 77th Anniversary of the Nuclear Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Win Without War

(August 9, 2022) — On a clear, cloudless morning, 77 years ago — death fell from the sky.

In an instant, the flash and fire pierced through the morning sun onto the city streets, and the world for the first time witnessed the power of the atomic bomb. It is hard to conceive, even to this day, the utter destruction that weapon inflicted.

Today, we remember and honor the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Their legacy lives on in our righteous struggle to rid the world of the means to destroy each other completely and to never unleash that terrible violence on one another again.

On this solemn 77th anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, will you take a moment to add your name to this petition we are sending to President Biden and Congress and express your unwavering commitment towards a world that is free of nuclear weapons?

We live with a rising threat of nuclear annihilation, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the height of the Cold War. With 13,100 nuclear warheads spread across 9 countries, the possibility of accidents and miscalculations is too great to ignore.

It only takes one: one accident, one miscalculation, one warhead to unleash the unthinkable. And as long as countries continue to stockpile nuclear weapons, the threat will never go away.

ACTION: That’s why on this solemn anniversary, we are reaffirming our unwavering commitment to rid ourselves of these terrible weapons and sending a message to our leaders loudly and clearly that we want to live in a peaceful, nuclear-free world. Join us and add your name to this petition.

To President Biden and Members of Congress:

On this 77th anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I want to take a moment to remember and honor the lives lost. I reaffirm that I want to live in a world without a nuclear arms race, free from the threat of nuclear annihilation. And I ask for your commitment to work towards achieving that outcome.


Thank you for working for peace,
Yint, Amy, Eric, and the Win Without War team
