TVC at Peace Action of San Mateo County

In the area of nuclear weapons, there is a lot to consider just lately. In President Obama recently submitted his Fiscal Year 2016 budget proposal – including spending for the nuclear weapons complex. This Spring will see the next 5-year review of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) that binds many of the world’s nations in an evolving formula for humanity’s survival – if enough of the nuclear weapons states can take steps toward disarmament. And last December marked the third Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons Conference in Vienna, Austria, in which the implications of nuclear proliferation for the world’s population were spelled out. Marylia Kelley, the executive director of Tri-Valley CAREs was in Vienna in December, will be in New York for the NPT RevCon in April and May, and will watch closely the introduction and evolution of the 2016 nuclear weapons budget. On Sunday evening, February 22, she will share her insights into these various events at the next meeting of Peace Action of San Mateo County. Marylia brings over 30 years of research, writing and facilitating public participation in decisions regarding the Livermore Lab, nuclear weapons, waste and cleanup. She has served on the Livermore Lab “Community Work Group” (since 1989) to advise the government and the community on the Lab’s Superfund cleanup of toxic and radioactive pollution. Marylia has testified on issues concerning the nuclear weapons complex before the House Armed Services Committee, the California Legislature and the National Academy of Sciences, among other deliberative bodies. Her determination to keep her community and the world safe from nuclear weapons has shown through time and again throughout her career as an activist. The evening begins at 7 PM and Admission is free, contributions are welcome. The UUSM is wheelchair accessible.

Location: Beck Hall at the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, 300 E. Santa Inez Avenue (at Ellsworth) in San Mateo.
