June 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join One Struggle, Many Fronts forum on June 18th to stand united against nuclear arms, the arms race & the use of nuclear weapons. The tide is shifting: we stand with the Women’s March to Ban the Bomb which takes place on June 17th and the UN conference negotiating a treaty to ban nuclear weapons (June 15th to July 7th) to say: no to war, no to nukes, no to warming, and no to walls.
