Following a successful week of activities in fall, 2018, Against the Wind Festival organizers are launching a second festival in 2019. The Festival was created to draw attention to the nuclear threat to life on earth and to fuel a new voyage of the first nuclear protest vessel, the Golden Rule. The nexus between global warming, environmental degradation, defense spending and nuclear power has led to addressing broader issues threatening our world.

To get involved in the Festival, please contact:
