Ellsberg and Moore

On ThursdayMarch 18th at 7pm, CFPA co-sponsored a conversation with Daniel Ellsberg about his book, The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner. Our executive director, Rev. Bob Moore, was a respondent after Ellsberg's talk. See recording of the event below. 

This book talk was sponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action, Maine Peace Action, New Hampshire Peace Action, Maryland Peace Action, Western New York Peace Center, Chicago Area Peace Action, the Coalition for Peace Action, and New Jersey Peace Action.

On March 5, 2021, a delegation coordinated by CFPA met with Congressman Tom Malinowski via Zoom. We discussed the Iran Nuclear Agreement; Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons; No New ICBMS; North Korea Nuclear Crisis; and Yemen & Drones. See screenshot below! Along with CFPA leaders and constituents from Rep. Malinowski's district, we were joined by Dr. Frank von Hippel and Dr. Rob Goldston of Princeton University. 

On March 10, a similar delegation met with senior members of Senator Bob Menendez's staff team for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. See second screenshot!
