History & 2018 Voyage of Golden Rule info
In 1958 the Golden Rule was sailed by 4 Quaker peace activists toward the Marshall Islands in an attempt to interfere with nuclear bomb tests. The project was instrumental in raising public awareness of radiation in the atmosphere; put pressure on President Kennedy to sign the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963; and inspired the start of Greenpeace.
Restored from 2010 to 2015 by Veterans For Peace, Quakers and others, the newly rebuilt Golden Rule sails for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future. For three years they have stopped at dozens of ports to give presentations and display messages of peace in contrast to the Air and Sea Show and other military demonstrations and celebrations of machines of war.

The crew of the Golden Rule will sail out of San Diego June 1, headed to Hawaii. Next year they sail to the Marshall Islands in time for the 65th anniversary of the Castle Bravo nuclear test on March 1. Then after sailing to Guam and Okinawa they will be in Japan for the 75thanniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
All along the way, the Golden Rule team will talk with people about how to stop the possibility of nuclear war and create a peaceful, sustainable future

More information about the history of this first peace boat, its mission, and plans to engage with communities around the Pacific to counter the growing rhetoric between the US and North Korea can be found at  vfpgoldenrule.org & www.facebook.com/GoldenRulePeaceBoat/
