Professor Tilman Ruff, University of Melbourne, keynote

Panel: David Wright, Union of Concerned Scientists; Jonathan King, Peace Action; Kea Van der Ziel, Physicians for Social Responsibility; Aron Bernstein, Nuclear Weapons Education Project

Join us at the Cambridge Public Library for a stimulating presentation from Australian physician Tilman Ruff, founding chair of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, and co-President of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War on the exciting global movement in support of the new United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

A distinguished local panel will discuss actions being taken in the United States to lead our national conversation back to arms control and a discussion of what it will take to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all.

Dr. Ruff will be bringing with him a replica of the Nobel Peace Prize medal, which will be available for photographs after the event.

Sponsored by the Cambridge Public Library, Massachusetts Peace Action, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility
