Helen Jaccard, the Golden Rule’s Project Manager, will talk about the original 1958 voyage of the Golden Rule peace boat, which played a role in stopping nuclear bomb testing and inspired the founding of Greenpeace.

Since being rebuilt by Veterans For Peace, the Golden Rule has sailed up and down the West Coast and to Hawai’i and back with a message of peace and nuclear abolition.   The mission is to educate the public about nuclear issues today and encourage people to take action to end war and the possibility of nuclear war.

At all ports-of-call, the Golden Rule Ambassadors lead educational discussions, conduct boat tours, and take people sailing on this historic wooden boat.  Their guest speakers are local and national activists working on intersecting issues.

We see radioactive contamination as an important environmental issue, not just from nuclear annihilation, but the whole nuclear chain.  Uranium mining is an environmental disaster and has disproportionately affected indigenous people worldwide.  Nuclear power plants not only leak radionuclides, but warm the water used to cool the core. Then there are meltdowns and  radioactive waste.
