The Ithaca Catholic Worker invites the public to take part in a vigil commemorating the 75th anniversary of the United States’ 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The vigil will take place Saturday, Aug. 8, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the corner of Clinton and South Meadow streets in Ithaca. Organizers are seeking to draw attention to the lives lost in Japan while also opposing ongoing present-day development of nuclear weaponry in several countries worldwide.
Participants at the Aug. 8 vigil will wear masks and observe safe social distancing. Signs are encouraged. For details, call 607-273-7108.
