Getting rid of nuclear weapons, which threaten all life on this planet, is one small step towards a world beyond war itself. This is an interactive, participatory workshop for those who want to seriously get down to the business of getting rid of these weapons, once and for all. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) just won the Nobel Peace Prize for getting 122 countries to agree to a new treaty which finally, and definitively, criminalizes everything to do with nuclear weapons. That’s the good news! Finally there is something we can DO about these weapons. We don’t need to wait for our government to sign this Treaty. We can start right here, right now implementing the new Treaty – as citizens, as faith communities, as businesses, colleges, towns and states – just as we are doing to meet the Paris Climate Accords, despite the government’s opposition. Complying with the Nuclear Ban Treaty is about boycotting and divesting from the 20 companies who make nuclear weapons for this country, and building an unstoppable movement from the bottom up, that will finally pressure politicians to take action on this most urgent and important of issues.
