This Friday Syracuse Peace Council's Nuclear Free World Committee will deliver petitions to Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, and Rep. Katko to support the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act (HR 669). This act makes explicit that Trump cannot launch a nuclear strike absent a declaration of war from Congress.

About 1000 people have signed so far. This will be a kick-off to getting another 1000.
