Stop the New Nuclear Arms Race — cancelled.

The coronavirus and uncertainty about the future have forced cancellation of the Stop the New Nuclear Arms Race conference scheduled for late May in Maryville, Tennessee. It is a great disappointment to the organizers, but necessary for safety and health. No decision has been made about rescheduling the conference given the abundance of unknowns at present.

Arrangements are being made to refund registration fees as well as sponsor/endorsement donations.

The conference may be off, but the work is not. We continue to push forward with collaborative work to rid the world of nuclear weapons!


Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
