Urban Action 8/5 

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

Vigil for Hiroshima anniversary

Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace will mark the 70th anniversary of the US atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. The event marked the first use of a nuclear weapon. For some at the time, the atomic age represented hope and sustainable peace. But in many respects, the opposite has occurred. The GVCP will hold a vigil for peace and freedom from these weapons at the Avon, NY, traffic roundabout in the village at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5. Signs and candles will be provided.

Meeting on transportation funds

The Genesee Transportation Council, the metropolitan planning organization for the Genesee Finger Lakes Region, will hold a planning committee meeting at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11. The committee provides guidance on the use of highway transit funds in the nine-county region. The meeting will be held at the Monroe County Fleet Center, Building 10, room 140, at 145 Paul Road in Chili. Information:

Metro Justice's anniversary film fest

Metro Justice will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a Social Justice Film Series. The films will be shown at 3 p.m. each Sunday in August at the Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue. Admission is free and the series is open to the public. The upcoming films include documentaries such as "White like Me" on August 9, which is based on educator Tim Wise's exploration of racism through the lens of white America. "Pay 2 Play" on August 16 follows John Ennis's attempt to find a way out of the current political system. Information:
