In 2009 President Obama declared that America seeks the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. Ask him to visit Hiroshima and recommit to that vision.
Guided by the values and expertise of medicine and public health, PSR seeks to protect human life worldwide from the impact of social injustice and structural violence. The root causes of social injustice are many and include the widening gaps between rich and poor, the unequal distribution of resources, discrimination, and the disenfranchisement of individuals and groups from the political process. PSR’s current core areas of Environment and Health and Global Security have direct connections to social justice issues.
