Webinar: “The journey to a world free of nuclear weapons – where we are and how you can get involved”
February 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm UTC-5
The Florida Peace & Justice Alliance Presents: “The journey to a world free of nuclear weapons – where we are and how you can get involved” with presentations by Dr. Lynn Ringenberg of PSR-Florida and David Combs of the Union of Concerned Scientists
The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force on January 22, 2021. We’ll talk about what the entry into force means for the U.S. and activists here in Florida. Lynn will discuss the TPNW from a healthcare perspective, especially connected to a local Florida context. David will talk about the Back from the Brink campaign, his experience with local organizing on nuclear weapons policies, and what you can do locally.
