DWPA has endorsed this special presentation by the Prescott Peace Builders. It is in remembrance of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ushered in the era of living with nuclear weapons and the ever present threat of nuclear war. The event is free and will take place in the Founder’s Room of the Prescott Library.
Hear the stories of how people have been affected by living with "The Bomb”. One of the story tellers will talk about her and her family being “Downwinders”, which is the term given to those who were affected by radioactive fallout from the above-ground nuclear weapons testing done in the U.S. Just recently there were articles in the Courier about financial compensation for the effects of radiation from nuclear testing being expanded to include people northern Arizona. In reality, all of us who grew-up in the age of nuclear weapons testing are “Downwinders.” Nuclear Radiation knows no boundaries; it goes where the wind carries it.

Featured speakers - Carole Benedict, U.S. Vets Prescott, and Jessi Hans, executive director of the Coalition for Compassion and Justice, will talk about assisting military veterans and their families through counseling, career development, and providing housing and comprehensive support.

Bi-monthly drive - This month we are accepting donations for the Asylum Project of St. Vincent de Paul in Phoenix. The Prescott Indivisible Immigration Team is working with other social justice organizations as part of the ongoing effort to assist those immigrants who come through Phoenix with limited resources. Phoenix is one of the waystations assisting immigrants in moving on to meet their families in other parts of the US. The need is great, and they request the following:
Travel size hygiene items (especially deodorant!), baby and body wipes in compressible containers; backpacks or sturdy closable bags; shoelaces; small canisters of formula and baby bottles; reusable water containers; diapers; small stuffed animals; Pedialyte/Ensure; adult and children’s socks, underwear, shoes (small adult sizes) and "teenage size" pants, jackets, shirts, socks, undies, shoes (gently used is fine)
