Communities Against a Radioactive Environment
Join us for this very special meeting where we will hear from guest speaker Professor Robert Jacobs. He is an historian of social and cultural aspects of nuclear technologies at Hiroshima City University. He is the lead researcher for the Global Hibakusha Project, which works in radiation affected communities around the world. He will outline findings of the Global Hibakusha Project and speak about the ways in which radiation exposures can devastate communities separate from the health effects, specifically in relation to the current crisis in Fukushima. We will also hear a report back from Marylia Kelley on her trip to the Non-Proliferation Treaty meeting at the UN. Don't miss it!
The meeting will take place on Thursday, May 15th, 7:30pm - 9:00pm at the Livermore Public Library in Community Room A. The Library is located at 1188 South Livermore Ave. Snacks and refreshments will be served. We hope you can join us.Tweet
