On January 22, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) enters into force following the earlier ratification of the treaty by 50 states. While the U.S. is not a signatory to the treaty, Pax Christi USA celebrates this monumental achievement and pledges to continue our work for nuclear disarmament, dreaming of the day that all nations — including the U.S. — abolish nuclear weapons once and for all.
