Artist Clement Hanami created his installation, "Fat Man/Little Boy", to describe how the world changed after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II. Hanami's mother is hibakusha or a survivor of the atomic bomb blasts.

The program includes musical performances by Scott Nagatani, Fidel Sanchez and Zuriani Zonneveld of the Progressive Muslim Union. Rev. Paul Talstrom of the Mt. Hollywood Congregational Church will bring the church's Hiroshima Cross, created from radiated wood from the atomic bomb blast and Rev. George Regas of the Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace will discuss the interaction of the different faiths in pursuing nuclear disarmanent.

Others set to speak are Shakeel Syed of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California and Hanami, who will briefly discuss his installation.
