The Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space was founded
in 1992 by the joint efforts of the Florida Coalition for Peace &
Justice (FCPJ); Citizens for Peace in Space (Colorado Springs); and New
York-based Journalism professor Karl Grossman. The inaugural meeting of
the Global Network (GN) was held in Washington D.C. City Council Chambers.
Between 1992-1997 the GN was housed in the
offices, and subsidized by, the FCPJ. Bruce Gagnon, at that time the
Coordinator of the FCPJ, served as Co- Coordinator of the GN with Bill Sulzman from Colorado.
In 1998 Gagnon left the FCPJ wanting to work full time on space issues and began serving as Coordinator of the GN. The GN is governed by a Board
of Directors which is elected at its general membership meetings.
