Please join Oregon PSR, WorldOregon, and the War Prevention Initiative of the Jubitz Family Foundation for Before They End Us: The New Global Movement to End Nuclear Weapons and Protect Planetary Health, a discussion about nuclear weapons and the nuclear disarmament movement featuring Dr. Tilman Ruff.
Dr. Tilman Ruff is Co-President of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW, Nobel Peace Prize 1985) and founding international and Australian Chair of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons."
The event will also feature the exhibit Children Remember: Nuclear Stories Through Memories, Relationships, and Art by artists Yukiyo Kawano and Oregon PSR Advisory Board member Chisao Hata. This powerful exhibit arose out of a collaboration between atomic bomb survivors, or hibakusha, and high school student artists living in Hiroshima, and is an evocative exploration of the tragedy of nuclear weapons use.
Tickets for Oregon PSR members are $10.00. Non-member tickets are $15.00, and student tickets are $5.00.
Purchase your ticket(s) today, and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, November 13th!
