Global tensions are dramatically rising from the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine. At the forefront of these tensions is the heightened alert toward nuclear weapon use. For many born in the last few decades, this is the first time in their lives that this threat of nuclear weapon use has felt real. Because of this, Asbury United Methodist Church and Livermore Indivisible are co-sponsoring a public forum entitled, “Pathways to Peace: Are Nuclear Weapons Necessary Today?”

There are many perspectives on nuclear weapons and their development, and this forum will highlight four different paths to peace. We will have four experts, Dr. George Miller, Dr. Ron Lehman, Fr. George Griener, and Rev. Joanna Shenk, speaking on the four topics of nuclear deterrence, nuclear reduction, just war theory, and religious pacifism. Livermore, California has a long history and connection to nuclear weapon development through the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and this forum draws on that history while equipping new generations to answer the question, “Are Nuclear Weapons Necessary Today?”.
This free forum will be in-person at Asbury United Methodist Church, 4743 East Ave, Livermore, CA 9455. It will be on May 15 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. with refreshments to follow.
