A request from Patrick Carolan of the Franciscan Action Network:
Recently the Franciscan Action Network has partnered with producer Helen Young to fundraise for her film, “The Nuns, the Priests, and the Bombs.”
The film follows a community of nuclear disarmament activists (plowshares), including Sr. Megan Rice, who are willing to endure long prison sentences, and even risk death, because of their deeply held conviction that nuclear weapons are immoral and illegal.
We believe this film can play a role in educating our communities on this pressing national and global issue and pray it can serve as a catalyst for action. To that end, we have started a fundraising page on Crowdrise (a non-profit fundraising website) and we are reaching out for your help to kick off this project. A portion of all donations made will be contributed to the defense fund for the plowshares group arrested in Georgia after they penetrated America’s so-called “Fort Knox of Uranium.”
Peace and All Good,
FAN Executive Director
