You’re invited! On Sunday, December 10, the Nobel Committee will award the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). ICAN received the prize for raising awareness on the health and humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons and achieving the first-ever U.N. treaty that categorically bans these inhumane weapons.
PSR is a proud partner of ICAN. Here’s your guide to the Nobel Peace Prize:
