Nuclear Legacy Week 2024

Nuclear Legacy Week 2024 (NLW24) brings together frontline, nuclear affected community members from around the globe to share stories and experiences and educate about the impact and ongoing consequences of nuclear bomb use, testing, and uranium mining and milling. The week will include a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Castle Bravo detonation recognized annually on March 1 by the Marshall Islands government and people as Nuclear Victims’ Remembrance Day.

 

NLW24 will feature youth educational and leadership development activities and showcase a series of panels and presentations by frontline community members, activists, and scholars to educate about the devastating and ongoing biological, ecological, and cultural consequences of the nuclear legacy.

 

The general public is invited to attend!

Registrants will receive an email with a welcome packet one week before the event.

Protocols for researchers and journalists

MEI has adopted protocols for working with nuclear affected community members. These protocols were initiated by the Nuclear Truth Project. NLW24 is intended as a safe space for frontline community members to share their stories, learn from each other, and network with others with similar experiences. While everyone is welcome to attend, if you are a researcher or member of the media, please contact MEI to ensure that you are well-informed about these protocols, our expectations, and guidelines. We will set aside designated times and spaces for those interested in interviewing community members to speak with those who are available.
