Livermore Lab, located in Alameda County, is one of two locations in the U.S. that develops every nuclear warhead and bomb in the stockpile. The nuclear dangers begin at the local level with the poisoning of our air, land, water and health. But, the dangers do not stop there. Livermore Lab’s weapons activities are also fueling a new – and escalating – global nuclear arms race. Marylia Kelley, who has spent nearly 40-years at the helm of the Livermore-based Tri-Valley CAREs will bring us up to date on nuclear weapons policies, locally and globally. She will then discuss positive actions toward global abolition of nuclear weapons, including the latest news on the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and a new environmental review that is happening at Livermore Lab. Come and get informed and energized by actions that can create a more peaceful and just world, even in the midst of war and other madnesses.
Marylia Kelley is Executive Director at the Livermore-based Tri-Valley CAREs and brings nearly 40 years of research, writing and facilitating public participation in nuclear policy decisions. She has testified before the House Armed Services Committee of the U.S. Congress and the California Legislature, among other deliberative bodies. Kelley’s work with Tri-Valley CAREs has garnered numerous local and national awards, and in 2002 she was inducted into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame. Marylia Kelley has lived in Livermore, CA since 1976, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 1983, Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment) has strengthened U.S. and global security by stopping the further development of nuclear weapons and working tirelessly for their elimination. Tri-Valley CAREs monitors nuclear weapons – and the environmental consequences of nuclear development – throughout the U.S. nuclear weapons complex with a special focus on Livermore Lab and the surrounding Northern CA communities. The group’s vision for a “green lab” in Livermore provides tangible steps to move the nation and the world away from reliance on nuclear weapons and toward a more sustainable and just future. Tri-Valley CAREs participates in regional and national coalitions and is a long-time member of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. The group’s website is at http://www.trivalleycares.org
