The Golden Rule

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

 

Veterans for Peace have vowed that the Golden Rule shall once again ride the waves of peace. Photos of the retrofit and restoration follow.
