National Security in Turbulent Times
As residents of the Pacific Northwest, with historical connections to the production of our country’s nuclear weapons and our proximity to the third-largest nuclear arsenal in the world in Seattle, we have a unique perspective and role in shaping the conversation around national security and nuclear policy.
Michelle Dover, program director at Ploughshares Fund, and Stephen Miles, executive director at Win Without War, are experts in the national security field. Visiting from DC, they’ll join the Jubitz Family Foundation for a conversation about the current state of US nuclear policy, the fight to diversify the voices making crucial decisions about our national security, and how each of us can be advocates for a safer world.
Ploughshares Fund, Win Without War, and the Jubitz Family Foundation work together with policymakers, experts, media, and advocacy groups to advance national security and foreign policies to make us all safer.
