As our first action of 2012, let’s help to build a stronger network of legislators in the United States and around the world working for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
Legislators play key roles in advancing or blocking nuclear disarmament policies, initiatives and treaties. In order to help achieve progress, legislators need to work not only within their own country, but also in collaboration with legislators in other countries. Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament (PNND), a global cross-party network of over 800 legislators in 80 countries, supports and enables legislators to take action on key initiatives.
Around the world, PNND members are active in promoting the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty; regional nuclear-weapon-free zone treaties (including ones in the Middle East, Northeast Asia and the Arctic); de-alerting of existing nuclear weapons; reducing/eliminating the role of nuclear weapons in military alliances; divesting public funds from companies involved in the manufacture of nuclear weapons and their delivery systems; and advancing the global abolition of nuclear weapons through a comprehensive treaty or framework of agreements.
Please help PNND to build membership, contributing to a political climate around the world that will facilitate the abolition of nuclear weapons. Contact your legislators and encourage them to join PNND today.
