Human Security & Nuclear Dimensions of War in Ukraine
September 11, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Tara Drozdenko, PhD, Director, Global Security Program Union of Concerned Scientists.
The risk of nuclear weapons has been with us for decades, but since the end of the Cold War, the threat of nuclear weapons has receded in most people’s minds. Russia’s war in Ukraine has brought to the foreground these latent concerns and made the reality of nuclear weapons more concrete. Nuclear weapons hold us all at risk, but even when they aren’t being used, they still cause immense harm to some communities. We will talk about the nuclear dimensions of the war in Ukraine, and the continuing injustice the nuclear weapons enterprise. Host: Mark Mueller

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
