Hiroshima Nagasaki Accord

Four of the world’s leading interfaith/intercultural organizations, Parliament of the World’s Religions, Charter for Compassion, United Religions Initiative and Religions for Peace have come together for the first time with a call for the abolition of all nuclear weapons.

This compelling video presentation offers a sobering look back to 1945 with archival photos and video clips as well as the voices of survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombings. In addition, a rare moment in history with former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev and former Secretary of State George Shultz (99) as they share their reflections from one of the most significant political meetings on nuclear weapons… the Summit at Reykjavik, Iceland.

A Voices Youth Award will be given in their names. The Hiroshima Nagasaki Accord, a joint statement issued by the four organizations, introduces nine actions to be taken to make the world safer and free of nuclear weapons.
