The Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) will sponsor a talk by Lawrence Wittner, Professor of History Emeritus at the State University of New York, Albany, on “How Peace Activists Saved the World from Nuclear War” at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12 at Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Street. A potluck dinner starting at 6 p.m. will precede the talk. Both the potluck dinner and the talk will be in the George Thomas Room of Trinity Church. Enter the door closest to Nassau Street and go straight back past the kitchen. The presentation is free and open to the public. Those attending the dinner are encouraged to bring a dish to share. Drinks will be provided. Mr. Wittner has written numerous books and articles on the world nuclear disarmament movement, including the award-winning The Struggle Against the Bomb. His most recent book, Confronting the Bomb: A Short History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement, will be on sale at the potluck and talk. “We are delighted to be hosting this most informed scholar on the history of the world nuclear disarmament movement,” said the Rev. Robert Moore, CFPA Executive Director. “Dr. Wittner’s research demonstrates that the work of millions of ordinary citizens over many decades has already succeeded in reversing the nuclear arms race, and is now bringing the possibility of global abolition of nuclear weapons within view.” For further information, call the Coalition for Peace Action at (609) 924-5022 or visit their web site www.peacecoalition.org.
