4.27 GARDENA, CA: Childhood in Fukushima: Hope in Adversity

Please join Families for Safe Energy for a special first-hand account of the situation of children in Fukushima by Mr. Sensuke Shishido, a former Fukushima school principal, and child advocate. Mr. Shishido will share his experience in protecting the children of his school in the wake of the triple disaster, as well as ongoing efforts to help improve the educational environment. He has been involved in securing government recognition and funding for "traveling classrooms," which will allow Fukushima children to have much-needed outdoor experiences in safe areas outside of Fukushima Prefecture. The advocates of this effort celebrated a milestone this week, winning $3 million in government funding.

Suggested Donation: $10.00
