SIGN THE PETITION
To Russian President Vladimir Putin, NATO leaders, and all governments:
We citizens of the world demand the Russian Federation and NATO must renounce the use of nuclear weapons. We also urge all parties to ratify the Treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons to end the nuclear war threats.
Nobel Prize-winning International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War is working tirelessly to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe.
A single nuclear weapon detonated over any city would kill hundreds of thousands of people instantly, leaving hundreds of thousands more with serious injuries. A large-scale nuclear war would destroy life as we know it. It's our duty to prevent this unimaginable horror.I
In collaboration with IPPNW, representing doctors from over 60 countries working to save lives and prevent harm.

WE WANT CONGRESS TO
PASS THIS RESOLUTION:
Nuclear Posture Review and Congressional Resolution
WHEREAS the Nuclear Posture Review may recommend new nuclear weapons; and
WHEREAS a nuclear war can occur by miscalculation, mistake, upon perceived grave threat or by first-strike calculation; and
WHEREAS a nuclear holocaust will end civilization, kill billions of people, and destroy the biosphere of all living things; and
WHEREAS even a nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan could create a nuclear winter, killing crops worldwide, starving billions of people and contaminating the earth with long-lived radioisotopes; and
WHEREAS other existential threats to humanity can be reduced by transferring the nuclear weapons budget to climate and disease solutions;
WHEREAS the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has been ratified by 56 nations and the only nation ever to have used atomic bombs on people has a special responsibility to lead in nuclear disarmament;
THEREFORE: BE IT RESOLVED that the Congress of the U.S. recognizes and calls on all people to recognize that the highest priority of humanity must be to prevent a nuclear holocaust; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Congress recognizes there is no threat to humanity and the biosphere greater than a nuclear holocaust; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Congress recognizes there is no institution, entity or government more important than preventing a nuclear holocaust; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Congress recognizes only by total nuclear disarmament by all nations and entities can nuclear holocaust be positively prevented; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Congress recognizes that chemical and biological weapons have been eliminated and outlawed by international agreement with mutual verification, establishing a precedent for nuclear disarmament; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Congress instructs the Department of Defense, Department of Energy and the Executive Branch to immediately invite their Russian counterparts to join the U.S. in mutual verification of the safe destruction of nuclear warheads down to a level no greater than of any of the remaining nuclear powers, who will be invited to follow suit.
The Call: Back from the Brink
The danger of nuclear war is real and growing.
We are marching to the brink of a catastrophe that threatens all of humanity. We need to act now.
Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a national grassroots campaign seeking to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy and lead us away from the dangerous path we are on. The Call lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. We are asking individuals and organizations around the country to endorse The Call and build a national movement to get the U.S. government to adopt it as its highest national security priority.
Join the campaign and help build a safer world for our children to inherit.
We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by endorsing Back from the Brink's 5 Points
Back from the Brink's 5 Point Plan
Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first
Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. president to launch a nuclear attack
Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
Cancelling the plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons
Actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals
Organizations please sign on to Back from the Brink!
"...the fate of the world and the future of the human race, is involved with preventing nuclear war."
