Webinar: Back from the Brink
Sep 25 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Union of Concerned Scientists and PSR are proud to be co-hosting a webinar to highlight the Back from the Brink Campaign on September 25.

Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a national grassroots initiative seeking to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy and lead us away from the dangerous path we are on. The Call lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. We are asking individuals and organizations around the country to endorse The Call and build support for the U.S. government to adopt it as its highest national security priority.

Learn more about the bold vision of the Back from the Brink campaign by visiting the official website here.

Make sure to mark your calendars! Don’t miss this exciting chance to hear about the Back from the Brink Campaign- and how you can get involved.

“Back from the Brink is a powerful and effective way to engage the public and elected officials in nuclear disarmament advocacy,” says Denise Duffield, Associate Director of PSR Los-Angeles, who has played a major role in the coordination of the Back from the Brink campaign. “Every organizational endorsement and resolution adopted sends an ever louder message to our federal representatives that they must take action to prevent nuclear war. We’re excited to present this webinar so we can share what we’ve learned so far and provide tools and resources for others to take action their region. City by city, state by state, the Back from the Brink campaign is building the public and political will needed to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy.”

Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Washington Against Nuclear Weapons Coalition presents a People’s Town Hall on Nuclear Weapons. This conversation informs the public and elected officials about the damage and dangers of nuclear war, examining Washington’s nuclear arsenals and the role of our state’s industry in producing them. Hear testimony from people whose communities have been directly impacted by the long legacy of the nuclear weapons industry in Washington State. The Town Hall culminates in the development of a resolution based on this testimony, complete with recommendations for action needed by Congress to be delivered to the Washington Senators Cantwell and Murray.

Join this dynamic dialogue about one of the most significant threats facing the people of Washington State and the global community, and help develop concrete recommendations on how we can work with our elected officials to achieve a safer, less costly, and saner future that is free of weapons of mass destruction.
