Climate Emergency and Nuclear War: What are the Connections?

August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join me in attending: "Climate Emergency and Nuclear War: What are the Connections?" (see flyer below), a critical conversation happening virtually on August 20th, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm ET. The event features renowned and engaged experts in the field, including Ira Helfand, Marty Nathan, Michael Klare, and Laura Reed. Climate change and the continued existence of nuclear weapons each represent two of the most pressing and existential threats to humanity and the planet, and yet these two issues are also interlinked. These panelists will explore the connections between nuclear weapons and climate change, as well as what social movements, governments, and concerned citizens can do in response.

Please note that this event will be live-streamed through YouTube and that registration is required. Please register by clicking here. Instructions on how to access the live stream and where to submit your questions will be sent to you in the coming weeks.
