Nukes, Climate Change, and Black Lives Matter: What's the Connection?
Activism for nuclear disarmament, climate justice, and racial justice have long been considered separate fights, but the issues they seek to address have a lot to do with each other. Join us on Oct. 20th 8:00pm EST, as we explore their intersectionality with a panel of prominent activists, researchers, and filmmakers who specialize in each of these topics. Speakers include: Seth Shelden, UN Liaison, International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN); Helen Young, an Emmy Award Winning Journalist; Natalie Sweet, Director of Communications, Zero Hour; Hawk Newsome, Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter of Greater New York; and Jim Anderson, President, Peace Action New York State. Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins, Founder and Executive Director, Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation (WCAPS), will give the keynote address. Come and listen to these esteemed experts and activists!!! The NYU IR Society will chair this timely event, and Sajani Patel of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will be moderating it.
