Today, the 74th anniversary of the United States imposing nuclear devastation on Hiroshima, Japan, Pax Christi USA launches its Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War Campaign.

We believe that the massive death, damage, years of suffering, and pure adulteration of humanity and creation caused by nuclear weapons should never happen again.

Therefore, the goal of this campaign is to get your local government (state, city, town, or county) to adopt publicly a “Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War” resolution. Places around the country are already doing this.

Join the Back from the Brink Campaign today.

Phase one of the campaign will be August 6, 2019 through August 9, 2020, and we invite all PCUSA regions, local groups, and individuals to participate. The campaign, modeled on the larger United States Back from the Brink initiative, is endorsed by numerous faith, civic, and peace groups. Pax Christi USA is already a public endorser.

Pope Francis said, “I plead for disarmament and for the prohibition and abolition of nuclear weapons.” (2017 World Day of Peace Message)

Let’s together commit to the Back from the Brink Campaign for the coming year.

One thought on “End Nuclear Weapons by Joining the Back from the Brink Campaign

  1. Will Pax Christi lead a pilgrimage to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in 2020, the 75th Anniversary? Alternatively, will Pax Christi organize a ceremony in the USA or help facilitate & coordinate groups who might hold a floating lantern event in solidarity with the Hiroshima Peace Museum and Park? Thanks for considering.
