While attending the University of Washington I took a class about Hanford taught by Holly Barker. I had been living in Washington for 4 years and had never heard of it before. I was fascinated by Hanford and wanted to get more involved. I started working at Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility where I worked on a program called the Washington Nuclear Museum and Education Center. It has an interactive map that shows different places throughout the world that have a connection to Hanford. From uranium mines in the Congo – to processing plants in Ohio – to test sites in the South Pacific.
The creation and use of nuclear bombs is the most significant part of the 20th Century and I am amazed that more people in Washington don’t know about our connection. In my free time I enjoy riding my bike, collecting records and reading books.
