This is the time to involve your city Mayor and/or City Council. Is your Mayor already one of 192 U.S. Mayors for Peace?
Check here to see if and when she/he or one of your former Mayors has enrolled your city. If yes, thank him or her publicly and invite participation in your events. If not, it is time to enlist him or her now!
Share with your community and elected officials the resolution calling for nuclear weapons abolition by 2020 passed unanimously by U.S. Mayors June 16 at their 80th National Convention this year in Orlando Florida.
WILPF is promoting "Hibakusha: Our Life to Live" for Hiroshima Day preparations, on Hiroshima day or at anytime during August Nuclear Free Future month and throughout the year. Contact David Rothauser at email@example.com for the DVD. Also request information about the Boston Branch campaign for an Article 9 amendment to the U.S. Constitution, similar to the one in the Japanese constitution provided by the USA after World War II.
