- August Desert Witness 2005 -
- Vision Statement -

Each one of us is a child of satyagraha, a tiny seedling of truth-force filled with the capacity to learn, transform, and rejoice. We are called into the service of that abundant beauty present within our need for healing, reconciliation, and peace. We are called to renew our witness to justice at the Test Site and all places and to inspire and empower all relationships within our work, as we remember the genocide of our sisters and brothers in Nagasaki and Hiroshima 60 years ago. Our voice calls out, during this Year of Remembrance and Action, for the immediate ending of nuclear testing at any level and the disarmament and abolition of all nuclear weapons. Our days of dialogue and witness together mark a rebirth, a regeneration of the peoples’ movement in solidarity with the oneness of all living things.
