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.
About this Event
Physicians for Social Responsibility is excited to host our first ever Virtual Gala on Thursday, November 19th, 2020. Normally, we would be welcoming you in person and presenting awards to individuals and organizations for their exemplary efforts in combating climate change, addressing environmental risks and nuclear weapons abolition. However, due to the Covid-19 global crisis, we have decided to stream this event straight to the safety of your homes.
Our theme for this year’s gala is The Way Forward. Our goal is to bring you an interactive experience that celebrates PSR’s accomplishments on the national and local levels and unveils a new vision for how we, as an organization of health professionals, meet the intersectional challenges of climate change, security, and racial equity in this extraordinary moment.
Our program will include a host of special guests, performances, and messages from those at the forefront of this fight. Please visit our website for the most up-to-date information on the gala as it unfolds. We hope you will join us for a truly special evening. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Cerece Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A link to the gala will be provided as we get closer to the date.
