Description

Carol Urner is WILPF's National Disarm - Dismantle the War Economy Project Chair and has dedicated her life to the movement for a nuclear weapons-free world. She leads a converstion on hope for nuclear abolition.
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1972 states that in exchange for the non-nuclear countries giving up all efforts to build nuclear weapons, the nuclear nations will gradually work towards the elimination of their nuclear stockpiles. That has not happened, in fact, every one of the nine nuclear powers is spending vast sums to enlarge and/or modernize their arsenals. A new initiative by 158 non-nuclear nations called 'filling the legal gap' calls for the explicit prohibition of nuclear weapons and establishment of a framework for their elimination. The proposed Nuclear Weapons Ban treaty would make nuclear weapons totally illegal! More information on Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF)  www.wilpf.org

    Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

    Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/Resources
