Welcoming the Golden Rule, Exploring its Significance

Mon June 19, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

The 39-foot sailboat Golden Rule is sailing the coast of New England during June to alert us to the need for a world without  nuclear weapons.

In 1958, an intrepid crew of Quaker peace activists sailed the Golden Rule to the South Pacific, to try to “get in the way” of massive nuclear tests the U.S. was planning there. They were arrested in Honolulu, but they left a lasting legacy.

Now, a new crew from Veterans for Peace is using this historic ship to campaign against the madness of nuclear weapons.  They will be in Boston June 18-21.
