Join us online, Wednesday, November 14th for a live streamed, in-depth briefing on the future of US nuclear policy. This event will be livestreamed on the Ploughshares Fund Facebook page.
The conference will feature major speeches by Rep. Adam Smith, Sen. Edward J. Markey, Rep. Ted Lieu, and Sen. Jeff Merkley, with other members of Congress and Administration officials to be added.
We will have a major announcement of a vital new initiative – Gender Champions in Nuclear Policy. Ambassador Laura Holgate, a leader of the initiative, will join Ploughshares Board Member Ambassador Pam Hamamoto and former Secretary of Energy Ernie Moniz to introduce and explain the initiative and discuss the importance of diversity in the field.
We will also have high-level panels and discussions featuring:
- Mieke Eoyang from Third Way, Alexandra Bell from Council for a Livable World, and Bill Press from The Bill Press Show assessing the impact of the November elections on US national security
- Eric Schlosser and William Perry on changes needed to current nuclear policy
- Christine Ahn of Women Cross DMZ and Lara Friedman of Foundation for a Middle East Peace, with our executive director, Philip Yun discussing the crises with Iran and North Korea

It will be an intellectually stimulating, inspiring series of livestreamed panel discussions and a great opportunity to see some of the best and the brightest from across the field. We hope you can join us online.
