Dear Friend,

Today President Obama made history by becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima. At Peace Memorial Park, he once again brought the world’s attention to his vision — to “eliminate the existence of nuclear weapons.”

This is, in large part, due to the efforts of Global Zero members all around the world who stood up and demanded that our world leaders take bold action to eliminate nuclear weapons.

Just last week, we delivered tens of thousands of Global Zero petition signatures to White House officials, urging the president to make plans during his visit to stand down nuclear weapons on hair-trigger alert and prevent a disaster like Hiroshima from ever happening again.

Unfortunately, President Obama failed to announce any concrete plans during his speech this morning. Instead of using his historic visit as an opportunity to announce steps to reduce the threat posed by nuclear weapons, he gave us just another speech.

Simply making a speech about nuclear weapons is not enough.

We need rhetoric to be backed up with action, because the serious threat posed by nuclear weapons will not end until our leaders take steps to completely eliminate them.

The good news is that it can be done. In the last seven years alone, we’ve seen significant progress in this fight. Global Zero members have been there each step of the way — and we will continue to be there until we reach zero.

Thanks for all that you do.

Fight on,

Samantha Meyer
