Susi Snyder, one of the leaders of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), brings hope to what seems like a hopeless conversation on nuclear weapons. Join us and have the opportinuty to chat with a Nobel Peace Prize winner and learn how you can help bring positive change the world.
Ms. Snyder writes, “Nuclear weapons remain the most destructive weapons ever designed. They are designed to devastate cities, to annihilate armies, and to vaporize populations. Nuclear weapons are things that we tend to think of in the abstract. We tend to think that only politicians or government can do anything about them. We tend to think our role is solely to try and influence those who create and implement policy.” She says, “Nuclear weapons disempower us. Nuclear weapons threaten us with destruction, fire, burning, and radiation. In all honesty, they are big and scary bombs that form the stuff of fantasy, or nightmares.” She emphasizes, “But, we can actually do something positive about them.”
