PeaceJam helped pass UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons!


IMG_5596The PeaceJam delegation joined the 1000 people who walked for 2 hours in the pouring rain on June 17 to express their support for a UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons.




These same youth gave a workshop at the UN conference that successfully negotiated a legally-binding Treaty  to Ban Nuclear Weapons.



PeaceJam board member Monica Willard shared photos from the March and the UN Conference. “This historic treaty recognizes the monumental cost to life and planet if any nuclear weapon would ever be used again.  With 15,000 nuclear weapons on or planet now, it is essential to ban these weapons and totally eliminate them before they destroy us.”
