New Mexico has a long history with the atomic bomb. Join us virtually for an exclusive event featuring author Jeanne Lyet Gassman, as she addresses the long-term consequences of nuclear testing after Trinity.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear the story of the downwinders (people who contracted cancer from exposure to radioactive fallout and radiation) and their ongoing struggle for justice and compensation.
