Ridding the World of Nuclear Weapons

A UUCPA Faith In Action Task Force

Purpose

The purpose of this task force is to take advantage of recent developments to promote complete nuclear disarmament - to work to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Events - The Vision of Reykjavik

In April, 2011, we will offer an ARE class entitled "The Vision of Reykjavik: Steps Toward A World Free of Nuclear Weapons."

Who:Dick Duda and Ray Schuster
What:A seminar on how we can reduce the tremendous risk of nuclear weapons
When:Four Tuesdays in April: April 5, 12, 19 and 26, 7:00-9:00 PM
Where:UUCPA

The purpose of this class is to recover the Vision of Reykjavik - the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons. We will do this by (a) refreshing our memories about nuclear weapons and their history, (b) bringing us up to date on how nuclear proliferation and the emergence of terrorist groups is changing the equation, and (c) addressing the commonly voiced objections to trying to do anything. The main thrust will be in providing the information needed for thinking about the issue, and identifying the things that each of us can do to help reduce the nuclear risk.

  • Meeting 1: Where are we and how we got here?
  • Meeting 2: Is a world free of nuclear weapons desirable?
  • Meeting 3: Is a world free of nuclear weapons possible?
  • Meeting 4: How we might realize the Vision of Reykjavik?
