VFP Golden Rule Project Coming To The Great Lakes (And Detroit) In 2023

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Golden Rule is a project of Veterans For Peace. We aim to advance Veterans For Peace opposition to nuclear weapons and war, and to do so in a dramatic fashion. We have recovered and restored the original peace ship, the Golden Rule, that set sail in 1958 to stop nuclear weapons tests in the Marshall Islands, and which inspired the many peace makers and peace ships that followed. The reborn Golden Rule is sailing once more, to how that nuclear abolition is possible, and that bravery and tenacity can overcome militarism.

 

To follow the VFP Golden Rule Project on Facebook, visit https://www.facebook.com/GoldenRulePeaceBoat. If you’re interested in crewing in California or around the Great Loop in 2022-23 or wish to volunteer, please fill out a crew application at vfpgoldenrule.org/crew-application The Golden Rule News Fall 2021 edition is now also available.
