Watch the Special Opening Remarks from Ploughshares Fund President Dr. Emma Belcher from Chain Reaction: Navigating Change above! Share it with your friends, and stay engaged in the fight to reduce and eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons.
For the first time since the end of the Cold War we are on the precipice of a new nuclear arms race, this time with both Russia and China. Opponents of arms control are on the attack, saying we should confront recent escalations by Russia and China with more nuclear weapons. But we know an arms race is not the answer. Better diplomacy, not more weapons, will lead to a safer future.
Join us to explore how Ploughshares Fund and our partners are navigating these dangerous shifts in the nuclear landscape and re-charting pathways toward a safer, more-secure future.
A series of events so related that each one initiates the next is known as a Chain Reaction. Every year we gather leaders in our field, devoted partners, and new advocates to generate a nexus of ideas and strategies to advance policies to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons. You—and every new ally you introduce to Ploughshares Fund—represent a critical ingredient in our formula for change.
