On August 29 - the International Day Against Nuclear Testing - NextGen filmmaker Autumn Bordner joins YPFP and the Arms Control Association (ACA) for an exclusive showing of Marshalling Peace. Her short film documents the tiny nation's legal battle against nuclear weapons-holding superpowers, and the devastating effects of the U.S. nuclear testing program on the Marshallese people.
Autumn and ACA Executive Director Daryl Kimball will facilitate a discussion on future nuclear weapons threats, and the responsibility of NextGen leaders to remember the Marshall Islands story as they help to advise and shape today's and tomorrow's nuclear policies. YPFP's Danielle Preskitt (who is a former ACA intern) will moderate.
When: August 29 at 7pm
6:30-7: Drinks & Snacks
7-8:30: Film & Discussion
Where: Johns Hopkins SAIS, Rome Auditorium
