On August 6, people set candle-lit lanterns to float across Green Lake for From Hiroshima to Hope, an annual peace event “honoring the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war and violence.”

The program this year featured speakers including Naomi Ishisaka, Seattle Times columnist, artist and social justice advocate; emcee Larry Matsuda, a Seattle-based author and poet who was born in a WWII camp for Japanese Americans; Ebony Miranda, cellist and Black Lives Matter activist; Lacey Stevenson Warrior, musical performance; and Japanese American drum performance group Seattle Kokon Taiko.
