New Hampshire Peace Action will host Alicia Sanders-Zakre for a special program in remembrance of the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima by the United States 76 years ago.

Alicia will talk about the human toll of nuclear weapons and talk a little about the difference between their destructive power, now and then. She’ll discuss the size of the US arsenal and global totals, and she’ll talk about how much the nuclear weapon states spend, how that money could be better spent elsewhere in the US, and the importance of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) as a means to shift global norms. There will be a Q&A at the end of the program.

Alicia is the Policy and Research Coordinator at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. She directs and coordinates research on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and general nuclear weapons policy. A Concord, NH native, Alicia holds a B.A. in International Security from Tufts University, as well as a certificate of completion in International Nuclear Safeguards Policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. Free and open to all. Please RSVP HERE.
