September 21st Annual Global Health and Peace Awards

Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility (GBPSR) and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) cordially invite you to join and support our presentation of this year's Global Health and Peace Awards, honoring Dr. Elaine Scarry and Dr. Richard Clapp for the extraordinary work they have done as longtime leaders for climate action and nuclear disarmament. We will also be giving our first Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Robert Jay Lifton.

Our special event will be in-person this year at the Ikeda Center in Harvard Square from 5:00-8:00pm on Saturday, September 21st, 2024.  We are thrilled to gather for some beautiful music, food and drink, and socializing with friends and colleagues who share our concern about the twin existential threats of nuclear war and climate change. A quartet from the Longwood Symphony Orchestra will provide the evening's musical entertainment.

Our event planning is taking place as two tragic wars involving nuclear-armed nations continue in Ukraine and Gaza, underscoring the reality that nuclear weapons do not keep the peace.  Indeed, these humanitarian disasters have dramatically increased the risks of nuclear proliferation and the use of nuclear weapons.  At the same time, the scientific community has made it clear that global warming is rapidly approaching a climate tipping point that jeopardizes life on earth as we know it.

But this isn’t the future that must be.  Together, we can control what humanity has created.  Please join us in this urgent work to end the threat of nuclear war and to advance local and global initiatives for a sustainable planet.

We would be thrilled to count you as a sponsor of this special event. Click on the sponsorship menu above for details. We welcome online donations or, if you prefer to send a check, you may mail your contribution to IPPNW (please note "2024 Annual Event" in the memo line) to:

All proceeds will be shared equally between GBPSR and IPPNW.  Your support truly makes a world of difference. Thank you!
