Groups Call on Biden to Sign Nuclear Ban Treaty, 
Traprock too

Sunday, January 22, 2023, Washington, DC: A letter* delivered today to President Biden and signed by over 100 national, state and local organizations calls on the President to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW or “Nuclear Ban Treaty”). 

The Nuclear Ban Treaty prohibits everything to do with nuclear weapons. It entered into force on January 22, 2021, and as of January 2023, is now the law in 68 countries. A further 27 countries are in the process of ratifying the treaty, and many more have committed to signing and ratifying.

…The letter, supported nationally by Peace Action, Veterans for Peace, CodePink, World Beyond War, Pax Christi USA, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Fellowship of Reconciliation USA, and others, provides the President with six compelling reasons why he can – and should – sign this treaty now…

*Full text of the letter and a list of organizations who have signed it is available at: https://www.nuclearban.us/president-biden-sign-the-tpnw/
