The United States is on a path to spend $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years rebuilding our entire nuclear weapons arsenal. This talk will address how African American activists have been involved in the fight against nuclear weapons, how racism, colonialism, and inequity have shaped our nuclear policy, and how this is playing out under our current Administration. Join Intondi for a discussion on strategies for action on the issue of nuclear weapons for communities of color and other citizens concerned with social and racial justice.
