Dear FOS11 Member,

The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, the Mortara Center for International Studies, the Center for Peace and Security Studies, and the Nuclear Threat Initiative cordially invite you to attend a debate on "The Threat of WMD Terrorism" between Robert Gallucci, Dean of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, and Daniel Byman, Director of the Center for Peace and Security Studies.

The event will take place on Wednesday, January 24th at 6:00PM in the Intercultural Center Auditorium on Georgetown University's main campus, and will include a screening and discussion of "Last Best Chance", a docudrama that shows the threat posed by vulnerable nuclear weapons and materials around the world. Families of September 11 and the Nuclear Threat Initiative have joined together to raise awareness about the threat of nuclear terrorism and what people can do to help prevent it, and this debate is intended to highlight the key issues facing policymakers as they grapple with this threat.

In September 2006, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and FOS11 launched a joint public education initiative to raise awareness about the threats from nuclear weapons materials to empower citizens to help reduce these threats.  This project includes activities such as: national screenings and panel discussions of the docudrama “Last Best Chance” (www.lastbestchance.org), the release of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to more than 1,200 television stations nationwide; the launch of the www.saferworld.org website for comprehensive information on how Americans can make the country safer and more secure, and public meetings to discuss the threat and prevention of nuclear terrorism.
