The Nuclear Fuel Chain: From Cradle to Grave - Jan 9

Event Dates: 

Jan 9, 11 am - 12:30 pm. FREE on-line event presented through Women Against Military Madness. Leona Morgan of Albuquerque  will address the connected issues of nuclear bombs and nuclear power. The first nuclear bomb ever developed from uranium mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo and exploded in New Mexico, a prelude to dropping the bomb on Hiroshima during WWII. Today, nuclear power plants throughout the U.S. generate nuclear waste, and its transportation to the Southwest for storage threatens the lives and health not only of people living in the area, but that of others everywhere. Leona (Diné) is an Indigenous activist and a community organizer who co-founded and coordinates the Nuclear Issues Study Group, which is a multi-racial, multi-generational, and woman-led volunteer organization based in Albuquerque, NM.
