Pax Christi USA has signed onto a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry which will be sent next week from the leadership of Catholic organizations and communities in the U.S. We are encouraging our local group, regional and other Pax Christi leaders to consider signing as well. You can send your name, title and organization/community by April 14 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The letter urges the United States to take specific steps toward nuclear disarmament during the UN meetings on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) that will take place in New York from April 28-May 9. It is part of a broad effort by the World Council of Churches to send the same message to governments around the world that they will hear in New York. We hope that this collective public witness will have a positive impact on the NPT process.
