The realities of climate change are being felt intensely in communities across the country, and the 2020 elections are poised to determine our fate. Advocacy is increasing, but opposition remains formidable. How can we make climate a winning issue in 2020, and make certain our leaders implement policies that ensure a healthy, just and prosperous future?
Join us at the 9th annual American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS 2020) — AMBITION • RESTORATION • JUSTICE on August 26-27 in Washington, DC. It’s the nation’s largest and most diverse gathering of leaders dedicated to broadening and catalyzing action and advocacy for climate solutions. Learn strategies and ideas to help transform climate action into a true national priority. The agenda includes inspiring keynotes, thought-provoking information, immersive conversations, and collaborative sessions on accelerating efforts to restore our climate, raise ambition, convert our challenges into opportunities, and ensure that our pathways forward are centered on justice and equity.

Greater Boston PSR (GBPSR) and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) are honored to have again been selected as Community Partners for the 2020 season of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra’s (LSO) Healing Art of Music™ program. In this year of social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with restrictions on large gatherings in effect in Boston, a special event will be streamed live on-line, beginning at 7 pm, on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, with proceeds benefiting our organizations’ efforts to address the twin existential threats of nuclear war and climate change. In addition to music, this event will feature remarks from William J. Perry, the 19th U.S. Secretary of Defense, who has firsthand knowledge of nuclear weapons at the highest level, and is now dedicating his life to their abolition.
Attendance to this virtual event is FREE, but donations on behalf of both our organizations, no matter the amount, will be put to good use.
