Fukushima Response Bay Area formed in 2012 to create a groundswell of public opinion, mobilizing the necessary political will to marshal an international effort to end this nuclear disaster. The BFUU Social Justice Committee sponsors events and forums on many issues of the day, including the “Conscientious Projector” film and discussion series. The BFUU Poetry Committee is a new group led by poet Frances Hillyard. Holly Harwood, who originated the poetry anthology project, previously worked as a free lance editor and as editor in chief for Ad Astraea Press. She is a member of all three groups.
