Take Action Now to Stop Preemptive Nuclear War

Good news! This past July, the United Nations passed a treaty that makes the use of nuclear weapons illegal. This is the first progress in nuclear disarmament since the 1980's.

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was recently awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, in part for its work to pass the UN treaty.

The prize gives a tremendous boost to ICAN and the efforts to stop the trillion dollar "modernization" and expansion of US nuclear capability. Continue reading
