BASE Youth hits the news for their work in NM!
The Youth Leadership Circle of BASE have been partnering with Think Outside the Bomb in their campaign for nuclear disarmament. This week, BASE Youth from around the country will gather in Chimayo, New Mexico, at the home of BASE member New Mexico Alliance/Teh-Lu-Lah Learning Center. They will be joined by other activists from around the country for a 10 day encampment.
The Disarmament Summer Encampment will take place from July 30 to August 9th, and is designed to bring youth from around the nation together to brainstorm ways to achieve nuclear abolition within their lifetime.
"The idea of the encampment is to create a free world where we ... understand that nuclear weapons are a much bigger problem than just the bombs — but the entire culture that created those things," Steven Stormoen is the youth empowerment coordinator for Think Outside the Bomb.
