We are excited to have Kasha Sequoia Slavner, award-winning Gen-Z filmmaker and founder of the Global Sunrise Project, join us to speak on the combined threats of nuclear weapons and climate change. Ms. Slavner’s first documentary “The Sunrise Storyteller” garnered international attention and accolades- her current project, 1.5 Degrees of Peace, is a documentary to inspire a unified movement for peace and climate justice. Grammy-nominated flautist Ron Korb and Toronto’s Raging Grannies will perform.
We will also live-stream the commemoration ceremony on ZOOM allowing our friends across Canada and beyond to join us in peace.
The powerful images of the Hiroshima & Nagasaki Survivors’ Poster and Art display will return to the Rotunda at Toronto’s City Hall and be open for public viewing August 5th, 7th-10th from 10 am to 4 pm daily (City Hall will be closed on August 6th).
