During the national wave of anti-nuclear protests in the 1970s, Oregon's Trojan Decommissioning Alliance (TDA) was the only group to target an operating nuclear plant for non-violent civil disobedience. Claiming headlines both for its demonstrations and its analysis of Trojan's safety and costs, the work of the TDA was complemented by that of the Coalition for Safe Power, which participated in Nuclear Regulatory Commission licensing proceedings.

The Coalition became Northwest Environmental Advocates (NWEA) in the 1980s. Nina Bell has been the Executive Director of NWEA since 1985. She was an organizer with TDA while simultaneously representing the public interest in licensing proceedings for numerous nuclear plants in the region.

At the next free program of History of Social Justice Organizing, Nina Bell, will compare the anti-nuclear movement and Occupy, discuss outreach before and after the internet, and talk about the balance between taking actions outside and within the system. A q&a will follow Bell's talk.

Tuesday, May 22, 7pm at Peace House, 2116 NE 18th Ave. on the corner of NE Tillamook, 4 blocks north of Broadway, an easy walk NE from the Lloyd Center Max station (still a free ride from downtown) and 3 blocks from bus #8, 4 blocks from bus # 9
