Ban Treaty event at Livermore Lab

Tri-Valley CAREs is celebrating the official “Entry Into Force” on January 22, 2021 of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, or TPNW. We invite you to celebrate this major milestone with us, either from your own home or more publicly.

We will host a banner-holding event on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 8 am at the Livermore nuclear weapons Laboratory "West Gate" on Vasco Road in Livermore. We ask prospective participants to RSVP (please do not just show up) in order to have a sufficient number of signs and 6-foot “Nuclear Weapons are Illegal” banners.

Additionally we ask you to RSVP so that all participants can be socially distanced, mask required. Contact Tri-Valley CAREs' Executive Director Marylia Kelley by email at marylia@earthlink.net to ask questions or RSVP. Be sure to include your complete contact information.

We will post photos of our TPNW action on January 22, 2021 on this website and on our social media outlets, including the Tri-Valley CAREs Facebook page, and on Instagram and Twitter.

Ending Nuclear Weapons…

Tri-Valley CAREs’ executive director will be the guest speaker on Wednesday, March 3rd at 6pm to discuss the Treaty

On January 22, 2021 the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force, enshrining the illegality of nuclear weapons under international law. The TPNW is binding on the countries that signed and ratified it, and more countries are joining and strengthening its norms even as we write this.

The U.S. and other nuclear-armed states boycotted the negotiation and adoption of the Treaty by 122 countries at the United Nations in 2017. Now that the Treaty is formally in force and part of international law, how can we in civil society seize this moment and help move the U.S. and the world to eliminate nuclear weapons?

Tri-Valley CAREs will be involved in analysis and action toward this goal on a regular basis. We invite you to join us.

One good place to plug-in is by registering for a webinar put together by the U.S. Back from the Brink Campaign and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which won the Nobel peace prize in 2017 for its actions to bring the TPNW to fruition. Tri-Valley CAREs is a longstanding member in both coalitions.

The webinar, which will feature interactive workshops, is titled “Ending Nuclear Weapons Before They End Us.” Its subtitle centers us in this task: “Opportunities Under the Biden Administration to Take Action.”

It’s being held on Thursday, March 4th at 11 AM Eastern - which is 8 AM Pacific Time. We know it’s early for us Californians, so bring your coffee and/or breakfast foods.

The flyer and schedule are below. More information and the registration link are at: https://preventnuclearwar.org/end-nuclear-weapons-before-they-end-us/

Register today. We’ll see you there!
