Dr. Norma Field is the Robert S. Ingersoll Distinguished Service Professor in Japanese Studies and will be retiring from the University of Chicago this year after a long and illustrious career as a scholar, professor and activist. She teaches a class: “From Hiroshima to Fukushima.”

Mr. Yamada is co-founder of the Skilled Veterans Corps for Fukushima (SVCF), a group of of Japanese retirees who have volunteered to do cleanup work to spare younger people exposure to radiation. After a year of ongoing environmental damage and foot-dragging by the Japanese government, the SVCF has decided to ask the American public and the rest of the world to put pressure on their own governments to persuade Japan to permit an international effort to put an end to this disaster.
