Perry at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, focused on the moral imperative behind eliminating nuclear weapons and the church’s historic and influential commitment to ridding the world of nuclear weapons. “This is a security question, it’s a policy questions, it’s a diplomacy question—but above all, it’s a moral question,” NTI Co-Chairman Sam Nunn told the group.
