We are in the planning stages and need your participation to strengthen our collective power and make the conference, rally, and march as impactful as possible. Together let's plan how to best raise up and reinforce each other's work at the conference, rally and march.For so many reasons, 2020 is an important year. 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This April 2020 mobilization comes at the perfect time to draw world-wide attention to our connected issues: prohibition and elimination of all nuclear weapons, reversing the climate crisis, and social and economic justice. With the encouragement of our partners who organize annual World Conferences against A and H Bombs in Japan, the International Peace Bureau and the Peace and Planet network have initiated planning for the conference, rally and march. Many international activists, including some of the world's Hibakusha, will be in NYC to bring pressure on the United Nations during the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference which starts on April 27, 2020. Let's use this opportunity to continue building the inter-sectional movements we need to send a representative from your campaign or group if you cannot attend. Contact for more information.
