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.

From Washingtonian's "Best of Washington" list 2016: "Several stores have opened in the neighborhood in the past year, but at the head of the class is this pair of his-and-hers emporiums dedicated to classic American style. Helmed by a husband-and-wife team who have clocked years at, respectively, Ralph Lauren and Vogue, the retailer focuses on wear-’em-forever basics in a prep-friendly rainbow. Cheeky extras (tassel earrings, Day-Glo pocket knives) keep the aesthetic from veering uptight."
