Cynthia Lazaroff

Cynthia Lazaroff is an award-winning filmmaker and founder of Women Transforming our Nuclear Legacy. She is an expert on US/Russian relations, including the history, geopolitics, military, cyber, and nuclear risks between these two countries. Cynthia is the author of Dawn of a New Armageddon, a personal account of the Hawaii missile scare, published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists on August 6, 2018. By sharing her 38 minute near-death experience that day she hopes to inspire others to wake up and take action to reduce the escalating and existential nuclear danger that threatens the future of all life on Earth, noting “The experience of feeling that you are about to be hit by a nuclear missile makes it absolutely clear what is most precious. I want us to be motivated not by fear but by love. To act from our love for this precious life, for the gift of this beautiful Earth.”

Senator Monique Limón

Senator Limón was elected to the State Senate in November 2020, representing the 19th Senate district. Prior to the State Senate, Senator Limón served as the Assemblymember for District 37. It was then that she introduced Assembly Joint Resolution 33 (AJR 33) which passed in Auguest 2018. This Resolution marked a huge step forward in California’s support of nuclear disarmament and put the state at the forefront of nuclear abolition. The resolution calls on federal leaders and our nation to embrace the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, make nuclear disarmament the centerpiece of our national security policy, and spearhead a global effort to prevent nuclear war. Senator Limón continues to serve her community as an educator, leader, and an advocate for causes advancing the quality of life in her community.
