Prof. Tilman Ruff

Join us at the Cambridge Public Library for a stimulating presentation from
Australian physician Tilman Ruff, founding chair of the International
Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace
Prize, and co-President of International Physicians for the Prevention of
Nuclear War on the exciting global movement in support of the new United
Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

A distinguished local panel will discuss actions being taken in the United
States to lead our national conversation back to arms control and a
discussion of what it will take to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all.

Dr. Ruff will be bringing with him a replica of the Nobel Peace Prize
medal, which will be available for photographs after the event.

*Sponsored by the Cambridge Public Library, Massachusetts Peace Action,
