We recognized Irene Etkin Goldman for her 15 year anniversary as Board Chair, and we honored Norm Cohen, who led our South Jersey chapter for over 35 years (click here to read his remarks). Dr. Zia Mian of Princeton University was honored for his work as a scientific advisor for the UN Nuclear Ban Treaty of 2017, and NJ Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald was honored for his gun violence prevention work in the legislature.
