Peace & Planet

Mobilization for a nuclear free, just and sustainable world

YOU can make a difference!

The nuclear nations (U.S., U.K., Russia, China and France) long ago signed onto a commitment to eliminate their nuclear weapons, but after 44 years, this group has yet to hold its first meeting to implement the commitment.

On April 27, 2015 the nations of the world will meet at the UN for a Review Conference to determine how to compel the U.S. and other nuclear weapons states to adhere to the commit­ments they made in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) of 1970.

Between now and April 27, U.S. and international activists will be building a campaign of mass participation in events related to the Review Conference.

  • April 26, 2015, New York City: International rally, march to the United Nations, peace festival and interfaith service – Buses available
  • April 24-25: International peace, justice and environmental conference 

Massachusetts resident or student

No age too young – upper limit 23 (UPDATED)
