On the anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki, we’re cycling the distance around a “small” nuclear weapon blast in downtown Washington and calling on President Obama to set the world’s course to zero by 2030.

It’s been nearly seven decades since the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- one of the most shattering tragedies in human history. Yet there are more than 16,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, and the risk that they’ll be used -- even right here in Washington -- is on the rise.

But so is the opportunity to eliminate that threat. If we push President Obama and other world leaders to deliver on their promises, we could reach global zero by 2030. Our message to these leaders must be clear: we won’t give up the fight until we eliminate all nuclear weapons, everywhere. That’s why we need you alongside us on August 9th -- to demonstrate that this is one anniversary we can’t afford to forget.

From Washington to Berlin, London to New Delhi, this event will be one of many around the globe calling on world leaders to remember and, most importantly, to act.
