NUCLEAR ABOLITION BEGINS WITH EDUCATION AND INSPIRATION

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation to hold several events in March

 

Santa Barbara–The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will be busy this March with several educational and inspirational events presented locally.

The first event, on March 7, is entitled What is Your Road Map to Peace? Dorothie and Martin Hellman will share their model for a peaceful, sustainable planet and provide insights from their new book, A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love At Home & Peace On The Planet. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

The second event, taking place on March 22nd, is a lunchtime discussion featuring two global leaders in the peace movement. Reiner Braun, Co-President of the International Peace Bureau and Kevin Martin, President of Peace Action, will lead a presentation and discussion on U.S./Nato – Russian relations and preventing World War III. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.

The third event, Realistic Hope. Radical Empathy, is a unique workshop presented by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s Peace Leadership Director, Paul K. Chappell. Chappell will cover, among other topics, how the power of conveying respect can increase peaceful conflict resolution and how to maintain empathy in the most difficult situations and effectively navigate the anatomy of aggression. This event will also take place on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, from 3:00 – 5:00 PM.

These three events are free and open to the public. They will be held at the Foundation office, 1622 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara. Space is limited, however and reservations are required. To RSVP and for more information, please call Elena at 805.965.3443 or enicklasson@napf.org.

Finally, the Plaza Playhouse Theatre in Carpinteria is presenting A Walk in the Woods, running through March 5, 2017. Lee Blessing’s Broadway play is a dramatic and humorous look at two diplomats who ostensibly try to reduce nuclear arms proliferation during the (first) cold war. The play examines the tension that Russia and the U.S. experience through a distant lens. Following the March 3rd performance, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will make a short presentation with a Q & A session. There will also be a special discount for the March 3rd performance, (use code NAPF). For more information or to make reservations call 805.684.6380 or go to www.plazatheatercarpinteria.com.
