The invitation was to first listen, to people still living in the contaminated areas, and then participate in a speaking tour with world-expert, Arnie Gundersen spanning a dozen other cities over a month (Feb-March 2016). At this special event, Olson will reflect on her experiences, share her core message on radiation and gender, and give an update from one of the radiation zones created on our planet by fission, a nuclear reaction that produces extreme energy.
