Nuclear Free World Committee


Read our press release on the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons).

The Nuclear Free World Committee, formerly Peace Action of Central New York, works to fulfill a vision of a world free from the threat of war and nuclear weapons, where resources are directed to human and environmental needs. We are an affiliate of Peace Action, the nation's largest grassroots peace and justice organization. 

The Nuclear Free World Committee and the larger Peace Council are also members of the Alliance for a Green Economy (AGREE), a statewide effort to shut down nuclear power plants and replace them with environmentally safer and greener energy sources, a 100% renewable energy supply.

2017 finds us in a dismal legislative environment, with a very dangerous president. See for example https://www.wagingpeace.org/donald-trump-bomb-human-future/

Our two main efforts for the coming months are to support the Markey (S200) and Lieu (HR669) bill to require a declaration of war from Congress before nuclear weapons can be used first (http://www.markey.senate.gov/news/press-releases/senator-markey-and-rep-...); and our "Don't Bank on the Bomb" divestment campaign (http://www.dontbankonthebomb.com).  For local action see http://www.cooperativefederal.org/en/nuclearfreeworld.
