Two Minutes to Midnight, Intersectionality, and Threats to Global Peace – Joseph Gerson, PhD.
May 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Joseph Gerson, PhD, is the Founding Director of The Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security (CPDCS) and Vice President of the International Peace Bureau (IPB). Dr. Gerson will speak on the unique dangers of nuclear arms and great power conflict currently confronting our nation along with the work his newly formed organization (CPDCS) is doing to build linkages between social justice movements in the face of these challenges.
Dr. Gerson has recently returned from disarmament meetings in Japan, Geneva, and New York, and was the lead U.S. organizer for the international “Two Minutes to Midnight” conference in NYC that featured Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg. Just days prior to his May 20th appearance at First Parish, Dr. Joseph and the CPDCS will have convened a seminal “working meeting” of leaders from a wide range of social justice movements to try to identify common ground and shared strategies for this dangerous moment in history. He will share insights gained at these gatherings.
December 3 @ 9:00 am
