Peace House was born in 1982 to work locally as part of the global effort to end the nuclear arms race. For a time it was lead sponsor of events around August 6-9 to commemorate the bombings of the two Japanese cities, both as a remembrance and a pledge of “never again.” In recent years the Ashland Branch of Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom has taken primary responsibility, but Peace House provides support in volunteers, publicity, and funds.
