Event Details


The sun rises on the Colorado mountains and the momentum of Nuclear Guardianship and all efforts to free the world from the scourge of nuclear weapons and bring about the best possible cleanup of nuclear waste expand exponentially. Join us for a rare glimpse into the current saga of the science and determination to prevent nuclear war and protect life on earth, and locally, to prevent Rocky Flats from ever being open to the public.
