In 1958, a crew of anti-nuclear weapons activists set sail aboard a 34-foot wooden two- masted sailboat named the Golden Rule and protested nuclear weapons testing in the Marshall Islands. Nonprofit organization Veterans for Peace restored and are currently sailing on a 15-month 11,000-mile voyage along the American coastline to continue their protest. There will be events and opportunities to come aboard Golden Rule, meet the crew and learn more about their mission throughout the weeks ahead. More information can be found at vfpgoldenruleproject.org.
