We are calling on the City of Madison and Dane County to Endorse Nuclear Weapons Disarmament and Divestment
Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) Wisconsin in partnership with the Ecumenical Peace Working Group, Progressive Dane, Four Lakes Green Party, and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom is launching a campaign calling on Madison and Dane County to support a “Back from the Brink” resolution. The resolution endorses the 2017 United Nations ban of nuclear weapons, calls for specific steps to prevent nuclear war, and a commitment to nuclear weapons-free contracts and investments.
Press conference makes official call
On October 19, 2018, a press conference announced the campaign to urge the City of Madison and Dane County to support a “Back from the Brink” resolution and commitment to nuclear-free contracts and investments.
Education and Discussion
On October 18th and 20th, 2018, three events were held to discuss the climate effects of a nuclear war and what we all can do to make to get involved and stand up for change. Other topics included socially responsible investment and the resolution.
What is a “Back from the Brink” resolution?
Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a national grassroots campaign seeking to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy and lead us away from the dangerous path we are on. The Call lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. The campaign asks individuals and organizations around the country to endorse The Call and build a national movement to get the U.S. government to adopt it as its highest national security priority.
