What's It About:
Over 123 nations (not including the U.S.) have come together to demand a treaty that BANS NUCLEAR WEAPONS FOREVER.
This historic treaty was proposed in 2016 at the United Nations in New York City. It's being drafted NOW. The collaborating nations will return to NY June 15 to work out the negotiations that will lead to agreement. The Women's International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF) is leading a big march in NYC on June 17 to support the negotiations, and cities around the world are also holding events--like ours in S.F.
Join the nations of the world who are saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH--the planet cannot sustain even the THREAT of nuclear attack.
