How do we deal with the North Korea crisis? What is the lasting impact and importance of the Iran nuclear deal? And what could new developments such as the proposed no-first-use policy, increases to nuclear weapons spending, and the UN treaty banning nuclear weapons mean for the United States and the world? These topics will be discussed by panels of policy experts, lawmakers and Ploughshares Fund's own grantees. 

It will be an intellectually stimulating, inspiring series of livestreamed panel discussions and a great opportunity to see some of the best and the brightest from across the field. We hope you can join us online.

For over 35 years, Ploughshares Fund has supported the most effective people and organizations in the world to reduce and eventually eliminate the dangers posed by nuclear weapons.

Nuclear Weapons Policy in a Time of Crisis. A livestreamed, in-depth briefing on Thurs. 10/26.
