Engaging in the Anti-Nuclear Movement

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants in this dialogue and workshop will learn how plutonium, a highly toxic radioactive material, is threatening the Front Range, why it matters and what we can do about it. We will ponder questions like, how can younger generations advance the anti-nuclear movement and why their involvement is so important? How can Boulder and the larger community establish a cultural commitment that prioritizes public safety and environmental integrity for present and future generations? And how can we ensure that the practice of Nuclear Guardianship continues long after we are gone? Presented by Jade Begay, Alesya Casse, Michelle Gabrieloff-Parish and LeRoy Moore of Rocky Flats Nuclear Guardianship.
