ATTENTION: Last Best Chance Screening and Discussion Event at Stanford University has been postponed.

The event which was originally scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, January 30, 2007) has been cancelled.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are working on rescheduling this event for a later date, and will announce the details when they have been worked out.



Dear FOS11 Member,

Dr. William J. Perry, Preventive Defense Project, The Nuclear Threat Initiative and Families of September 11 cordially invite you to attend a screening of the film "Last Best Chance", a docudrama that shows the threat posed by vulnerable nuclear weapons and materials around the world.  Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with leading experts about preventing nuclear terrorism.  Discussion panelists include Dr. William J. Perry, Co-Director, Preventive Defense Project; Dr. Siegfried Hecker, Co-Director, Center for International Security and Cooperation and former Director of Los Alamos National Laboratory and Carie Lemack, Co-Founder and President, Families of September 11.

The event will take place on Tuesday, January 30th from 2:00PM – 3:30PM in the Bechtel Conference Center, Encina Hall at Stanford University. 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. For more information, visit www.saferworld.org.

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.
