In 1958, Quaker activists sailed the Golden Rule peace boat towards the Marshall Islands to interfere with atmospheric nuclear weapon testing. They were stopped and arrested in Honolulu, which spurred worldwide outrage that ultimately resulted in the Limited Test Ban Treaty of 1963.

Now, 61 years later, Veterans For Peace (VFP) is sailing Golden Rule to Japan to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Once again, Golden Rule is in Honolulu, where you can visit her at Ala Wai small boat harbor, the very place she was when the crew was jailed. “The little sailboat with a big mission” — to stop the possibility of nuclear war — is on Oahu through November 28, 2019.

Helen Jaccard

Helen Jaccard is the Golden Rule Project Manager and a crew member on the Golden Rule.  Helen will present on the history of the Golden Rule and the current mission of the Golden Rule Project to advance VFP’s opposition to nuclear weapons and war.
