The Nuclear Resister, Nukewatch, and the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance invite you to an international conference May 22-25 in Maryville, Tennessee.

What is it about?
We want to develop ways to collaborate globally to advance the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and achieve nuclear abolition. We will have workshops, strategy sessions, panel presentations, music, and opportunities for networking, training, action, and cake.

Who is it for?
You—if you want to be part of a coherent, effective movement, blending multiple strategies, to get rid of nuclear weapons. We’re planning sessions on resistance, divestment campaigns, legal challenges, local organizing, and political action. We are stronger when we understand and collaborate with each other.

Where is it?
Maryville College, Maryville, TN, is 20 miles from the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge, TN, where US thermonuclear weapons components are made.

How do I get more information?
We are in the early planning stages. For more information check: nukewatchinfo.org/stop_new_nuclear_arms_race for more information or email actionfortheban@gmail.com.

Why now?
It’s two minutes to midnight—the nuclear threat is real and urgent. 2020 also marks 75 years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And 40 years of the Nuclear Resister, Nukewatch, and the Plowshares movement.
