Thank you, friends of Daisy Alliance!
As many of you know, we lost our founder, Bruce Roth, in December. We have received many donations in his memory and would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their generosity, as many of these donations were made anonymously.
Donations help to fund our education program, which aims to raise awareness among high school and college students about the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and the intersectionality between nuclear weapons and other social issues such as racism, poverty, and the legacy of colonialism. We advocate for a holistic view of national security that includes the individual, and we work to train students in diplomacy and activism in key nuclear weapons issues.
In honor of Bruce, Daisy Alliance is re-naming our annual student conference the Bruce A. Roth Memorial Student Simulation on Nuclear Weapons. The one-day conference provides college students with the opportunity to gain practical simulated experience in international relations, with a focus on nuclear weapons issues. In past simulations hosted by Morehouse College, Spelman College, Emory University, and Georgia Tech, students negotiated a Middle East nuclear-weapons-free zone. We have two new simulations, created in partnership with the Union of Concerned Scientists, debuting in Fall 2022. Topics include the US nuclear weapons posture and budget and restarting nuclear arms control talks with China. In addition to the simulations, we are in the nascent stages of creating an online course on human security and nuclear weapons.
We are also excited to announce a new partnership with Back from the Brink, a US-based grassroots coalition calling on the US to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war.
