PSR Director of Communications and Outreach Sparks Reflective Conversations in Nuclear Community on Intersectionality and Privilege January 21, 2022

PSR’s very own Mari Faines, Director of Communications and Outreach, has started a community-wide conversation in the nuclear field about the importance of intersectionality in our work, and the previously unspoken privilege that lies in the existential threat of nuclear war being the biggest threat to your security. In an article published in Outrider Foundation, Mari asserts that “We cannot continue to walk into spaces with people we want to intersect with while not understanding the basics of their issues or even acknowledging that their insecurity may be more proximate than the threat of nuclear war.” Mari was then invited on the podcast Press The Button hosted by Ploughshares Foundation where she discussed these topics further.
