National PSR will be hosting the Visionary Leaders Awards Reception and Symposium on November 7th in Washington, DC. Now in its fourth year, the Visionary Leaders Awards recognizes individuals and organizations for their exemplary efforts in advancing nuclear weapons abolition and addressing environmental risks to human health, including the catastrophic consequences caused by climate change, through collaborations that strengthen PSR's mission.
Among this year’s honorees are Kelly Campbell, Executive Director of Oregon PSR, and Regna Merritt, our recently retired Healthy Climate Program Director. The Sunrise Movement, a youth-led nonprofit pushing immediate political action on climate change will also be honored, and National PSR will also be presenting Dr. Helen Caldicott with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her internationally renowned work to educate the public about the health hazards of nuclear war. Dr. Caldicott served as the President of PSR from 1978-1983 and helped revive the organization.
