Reclaiming Power: Remembering the Fukushima Accident and Combating Nuclear Threats in CNY
March 11, 2012 - 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

But in reality, nothing has changed, except we now know that nuclear plants in Central New York are more dangerous than previously thought.
Find out about the Fukushima-style reactors in Central New York and what you can do about them.
