Later this month, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will enter into force and become international law. We hope that you will join us and our partners at Washington PSR on Thursday, January 21st from 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM (PST) (PLEASE NOTE UPDATED TIME) for an online celebration to mark the Treaty’s entry into force and explore how it advances nuclear justice. We’ll share a toast (please have a beverage of your choice at hand), hear from a few speakers working for nuclear justice, answer your questions, and connect with each other and celebrate together.
Confirmed speakers include: Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer; Dr. Hideko Tamura Snider (hibakusha, anti-nuclear activist, and One Sunny Day Initiatives founder); Kianna Juda-Angelo (Pacific Islander advocate, founder of Living Islands, and co-founder of COFA Alliance National Network); Dr. Vincent Intondi (Director of the Institute for Race, Justice, and Civic Engagement at Montgomery College and author of African Americans Against the Bomb: Nuclear Weapons, Colonialism, and the Black Freedom Movement); and others soon to be announced. Our event host will be performing artist, educator, community organizer, and Oregon PSR Advisory Board member Chisao Hata.
