Tularosa Downwinders To Host Vigil on Saturday

Jul 20, 2018

The Tularosa Downwinders Consortium holds its annual candlelight vigil in Tularosa on Saturday, at 7:30 pm to honor those New Mexicans who have been affected by radiation since the first atomic bomb test on July, 1945.  Downwinders' Tina Cordova has recently returned from speaking to a US Senate subcommitee on expanding the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act coverage to include New Mexicans who were living in the Alomogordo area at the time of the test, and their descendents.
