Join us on September 25 as we launch the next phase of the Back from the Brink initiative with a national webinar: Back from the Brink – Organizing Locally to Prevent Nuclear War. We’ll share some of our successes, lessons learned so far, and present strategies and tools for individuals and organizations to take action locally. You’ll also be able to communicate with Back from the Brink organizers and volunteers.
The threat of nuclear war is real and growing, and we believe this movement represents our best chance at charting a safer, saner, and less costly direction in US nuclear policy. To date, 280 organizations have endorsed Back from the Brink, and resolutions in support of Back from the Brink’s policy recommendations have been adopted by 35 municipalities and 4 state legislative bodies.
Every organizational endorsement and resolution adopted sends an ever louder message to our federal representatives that the U.S. must fundamentally change its nuclear security policy. Each of us can amplify this message by organizing in our own region. Join on on September 25 to learn more about this exciting campaign and how you can get involved.
