An evening with  Helen Caldicott, founder of WAND

(Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament)

Helen Caldicott, MD is coming to visit us in Atlanta this fall!  Mark your calendars now for Monday evening, October 3, 6:30 pm, 7 Stages, 1105 Euclid Avenue NE.    We don’t want you to miss hearing this brilliant and outspoken advocate for nuclear disarmament. We are proud to co-sponsor this event with 7 Stages, which will also feature a stand-out comedy sketch- Del Hamilton and Faye Allen demonstrating how to put on a hazmat suit!

Helen founded WAND in 1980 and is still recognized as the most visible advocate for peace and nuclear disarmament in the world. She has devoted the last 38 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.

Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking said of Helen: “She showed me what one set-on fire human being can do to shift the consciousness of the world.” Edward M. Kennedy (now deceased) said of Helen: “She was the First Lady of the Nuclear Freeze Movement."

Her awards, acknowledgments and citations fill pages: Nuclear-Free Future Lifetime Achievement Award, 2011, Peace Organisation of Australia, Australian Peace Prize, 2006, member of Physicians for Social Responsibility (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War), which won the Nobel Peace Prize, 1985;United Nations Association for Australia, Peace Medal Award, 1985…to name a few.

Dr. Caldicott has written several books including Nuclear Power Is Not the Answer, War in Heaven, Nuclear Madness, Missile Envy, A Desperate Passion, If You Love This Planet, and The New Nuclear Danger. She has developed dozens of video tapes and films, written scores of articles which have appeared in nearly every major newspaper and magazine; spoken at major universities throughout the world and has met with heads of state everywhere.

Six weeks after the nuclear reactor disaster at Fukushima, Japan, Helen authored an important opinion piece for the Sunday New York Times (April 30, 2011) entitled Unsafe at Any Dose.

Stay tuned for details about Helen’s visit with Georgia WAND from Monday October 3 through Wednesday October 5.
