Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons and signs of hope for a nuclear weapons-free world November 28, 2023

Held on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 28, 1 pm (ET) at Baha’i International Center UN PLAZA / Hybrid

Signs of hope are found in 93 nations that have signed the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). This trajectory resulted from a commitment made at the UN in 2010 to consider the impact of production, testing and use of nuclear weapons from the perspective of emergency responders, public health and sustainable development. The Humanitarian initiative is rooted in the hearts and minds of so many seeking a nuclear-weapons-free world dating back to 1945, in New Mexico, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki and so many other places.

Speakers include:

Carlos Umaña, MD, Co-President, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW)

Cathey Eisner Falvo, MD, MPH, Board Member, Physicians for Social Responsibility, New York

Mary Olson, Founder, Gender and Radiation Impact Project

Frances Jeffries, PhD, Moderator, Rotary Action Group for Peace Nuclear Weapons Education Committee
