September 26: Fund Healthcare, Housing, and Jobs and Eliminate Nuclear Weapons
"Nuclear weapons present an unacceptable danger to humanity. The only real way to eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons is to eliminate nuclear weapons."
—UN Secretary-General António Guterres
September 26 marks the United Nations International Day to Eliminate all Nuclear Weapons. CODEPINK is joining with our friends at Massachusetts Peace Action to join the national movement to stand out for the elimination of nuclear weapons! Call on Congress to divest from war and invest in human needs. Join an event near you OR plan your own event
Sign up to host a street corner rally or a rally outside of your Congress person’s office demanding the elimination of nuclear weapons, releasing billions of federal dollars to fund life-sustaining needs for people and the planet! Following our Congressional representative's historic vote on legislation that would cut the Pentagon budget by 10% this is an important way to keep the pressure up and remind them we still need to slash the Pentagon budget and invest in life-affirming programs!
