Rebecca Johnson joined CND while living at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in the 1980s. From Embrace the Base and dancing on the silos to the 1987 INF Treaty, five years at Greenham inspired her to change her life’s direction, and pursue peace and disarmament through nonviolent feminist activism.

Over the years, Rebecca contributed to various campaigns, from banning testing to Faslane 365 and Action AWE, as well as providing strategic leadership for ICAN’s campaign to achieve the 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. She founded the Acronym Institute for Disarmament Diplomacy in the early 1990s.

During the 1980s she served on CND’s Council as a vice-chair. Rebecca is now a vice-president of CND.
