Restoring the Golden Rule
In 1958, a four person crew of Quaker activists set sail from California aboard the Golden Rule in an attempt to halt atmospheric nuclear weapon tests in the western Pacific.
The efforts by her crew resulted in the nuclear weapons Atmospheric Test Ban Treaty of 1963. Learn about her amazing story and “THE PROJECT and The Mission”. Visit www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org
