WILPF / Proposition One Campaign Nuclear-Free-Future Tour

Below are links to photos and contacts from our Nuclear-Free-Future tour so far, starting on the West Coast of the US January 21 to February 21, 2016, continuing on the East Coast April 7 to May 7, 2016, to promote HR-1976 during this election year - the Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act - and to advise WILPF branches and others about international efforts to abolish nuclear weapons.

In her presentations, Carol Urner shared a number of resources, which are linked here.

Next stops: Beginning April 22, 2017 (Earth Day) in St. Louis, MO, Ellen plans to travel west to Columbia, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas, then north to DesMoines, Iowa, South and North Dakota, and then east through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pittsburgh, PA, and DC for Alliance for Nuclear Accountability DC Days, then north to Philadelphia, then New York for the Left Forum the first weekend in June, then who knows? until returning to New York City for the Women's March to Ban the Bomb on June 18th.

Ellen hopes that Odile Hugonot-Haber (Ann Arbor, MI), Ann Suellentrop (Kansas City), and others who have good information to share at the next stop(s) on the tour about any part of the nuclear chain, uranium mining to power plants, to weapons, to waste disposition and transportation, will be able to join her for a while on her two-month journey. If you or your branch would like to host her, and if you could help set up meetings with your legislators to promote the Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act, please contact Ellen as soon as possible at et@prop1.org or 202-210-3886 (cell and text).
