"Nuclear weapons continue to cast a long shadow over humanity and pose an appalling threat to life on earth. Disarmament is critical to achieving peace, development and lasting security." - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a message to the Future Policy Awards ceremony at the United Nations in October.
I am a student and practitioner of nonviolence, working for the abolition of ALL nuclear weapons. I coordinate media & outreach for Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action (www.gzcenter.org), and also coordinate the Puget Sound Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (psnukefree.org) and the NO To NEW TRIDENT Campaign.
