"Nuclear Disarmament: What is taking us so long?" will be presented by Sister Megan Rice from Washington, D.C. Sister Megan Rice was 82 years old in 2012 when she and two fellow activists broke onto the property of the Y-12 uranium plant for nuclear bombs in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The antiwar protest was called "the biggest security breach in the history of the nation's atomic complex." They were convicted of trespassing. When she was released after serving two years in prison, she said, "We have 7,000 nuclear weapons under the control of one man...I'm not out of prison. None of us is out of prison as long as one nuclear bomb exists." Megan is at the center of Washington Post reporter Dan Zak's book, "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age."
