Cold War Patriots, a community resource organization that is the nation’s strongest and most sustained voice advocating for nuclear weapons and uranium worker benefits, will host a free event in Arvada to honor Rocky Flats and Coors Porcelain workers.
The event is co-hosted by Rocky Mountain Medical Center. It is part of the Cold War Patriots 10th annual Official National Day of Remembrance, which is Tuesday, Oct. 30. The Arvada reception is Monday, Oct. 15 at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd. Registration and worker reunion coffee hour is 9-10 a.m., and the recognition and remembrance program is 10-11:30 a.m.
Each year, the U.S. Senate passes a bipartisan resolution that sets aside Oct. 30 as a day to honor the contributions and sacrifices of the country’s uranium and nuclear weapons workers. More than one million Americans worked with uranium or in the nation’s nuclear weapons complex from its origins with the Manhattan Project during World War II to the present day.
“This is an important event that will enable us to thank the Rocky Flats and Coors Porcelain workers for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice,” Cold War Patriots Chairperson Tim Lerew said in a news release. “They did their part to keep America free, and this is our opportunity to honor them.”
