Pax Christi USA is a member of the Washington Working Group of Pax Christi International. This group composed of Maryknoll, Sisters of Mercy and the Columbian Fathers and Brothers does advocacy work around the following issues: nuclear disarmament, US relations with Israel and Palestine, the war in Syria, etc.
With this in mind, PCUSA is lending its support to this document, Catholic Morality and Nuclear Abolition, and invites you to sign – and invite other Catholic leaders to do the same. A fact sheet about the statement can be found by clicking here.
To sign, please send your name, title and organization to Marie Dennis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the close of business on Friday, March 20, 2015.
This statement will be delivered to Catholics in Congress and the Administration with a copy of the Holy See’s Nuclear Disarmament: Time of Abolition. It will also be made public in advance of the NPT Review Session in April- May.
In closing, Pax Christi USA committed to disarmament invites you to send a clear message to Congress that the elimination of nuclear weapons is not only a moral imperative; it is the ultimate measure of our worth as human beings.
