Send a letter to your Representative here!
For the first time we have a bill in Congress calling for a nuclear free future by 2020—a short time frame within most of our own lifetimes.
HELP WILPF LOBBY FOR NUCLEAR-FREE FUTURE BILL HR-1650: "Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act of 2013." Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton calls for nuclear weapons abolition by 2020 and for replacing nuclear power with truly green energy. Send your own Representative an email today urging co-sponsorship of HR 1650.
In the WILPF DISARM/End Wars committee we believe the need for Nuclear Weapons Abolition and closing down of the whole nuclear chain is urgent.
WILPF members are working in clusters to abolish nuclear weapons, shut down nuclear power, ban depleted uranium, stop production or nuclear waste and end uranium mining including on Native American lands. Of course our overall goal, like that of the United Nations, is general and complete disarmament and an end to war, as well as work on other disarmament issues and ending and preventing wars. However, we believe abolition of nuclear weapons is a necessary first step.
