R.M.I-U.S. Nuclear Legacy Summit
From 1946-1958 the United States tested 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands, which caused cultural, biological and environmental damages that Marshallese still struggle to address, including forced resettlement, uninhabitable lands, and radiogenic illnesses. MEI is joining with the Marshallese Community in Oregon and the Radiation Exposure Awareness Crusaders for Humanity - Marshall Islands (REACH-MI) to organize a R.M.I.-U.S. Nuclear Legacy Summit in Salem, May 27-28th to address the shared legacy of U.S. nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands. We are also highlighting the extraordinary work done by Marshallese youth in the areas of human rights and social justice. If you would like to recognize an outstanding Marshallese youth or group, please send a photo and a detailed caption of their accomplishments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us raise awareness by contributing to the nuclear legacy event fund. MEI is currently accepting donations for the event. All contributions are tax deductible.
MEI’s mission: promote awareness of Marshallese history and culture and facilitate intercultural dialogue to foster positive social change.
MEI's areas of focus:
1. Educational Attainment
2. Culture and History
3. Nuclear Legacy & Climate Change
