Hello All!

I’ve had to take a break from blogging as I moved from Buenos Aires to Washington, DC to Boston, but I will be back with more about the DDV CAmpaign in Argentina upon my return from visiting my family and as I start myschool year..  In the meantime, I thought fellow AP-IANSA fellows would be interested in the following photo contest related to disarmament.  Details below.
