NUCLEAR ABOLITION TREATY – NOW THE WORK BEGINS

Place: Dorothy Day Catholic Worker: 503 Rock Creek Church Rd. NW, Washington, DC, 20010.

On July 7, 2017, at the conclusion of the “UN Conference To Negotiate a Legally Binding Instrument to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons,” 122 countries voted in favor of a historic “Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.” The U.S. and other nuclear nations boycotted the conference. Dominican Sisters’ Ardeth Platte and Carol Gilbert, longtime peacemakers who have been imprisoned for plowshares actions, attended this special UN Conference. They will explain the process of support for the treaty and provide an update regarding the future steps to be taken at the United Nations. They will also share their first action in distributing the treaty that will affect all nations, leaders of nations, all Commanders of nuclear bases, and military personnel. There will be an open discussion as to where we go from here to keep “the movement for elimination of nuclear weapons and war” going.
