NuclearBan.US in Port Angeles

Vicki Elson and Timmon Wallis are co-founders of NuclearBan.US, a partner of  ICAN, which won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for its role facilitating the 2017 U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  They'll be in town to explain how the Treaty is the game-changing tool that can lead to the total elimination of nuclear weapons, before they eliminate us.  Those already working on the issue will receive updates about how to use the Treaty to get to the next level.     

Their strategy goes beyond asking politicians to pass resolutions: they support individuals, organizations, cities and states to align themselves with the Treaty by boycotting and divesting from the nuclear weapons industry.  Come and learn how you can literally help save the world, and share in the Nobel Peace Prize too.  Spread the word!
