January 22 is the monumental day when nuclear weapons become illegal worldwide as the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons enters into force.
You’re invited to join World BEYOND War and our partners to celebrate this historic day, mobilize those countries that haven’t signed the treaty to urge them to act, and strategize about how we can leverage this success to push further in the campaign for nuclear abolition and the end to all war.
This is a pivotal moment in the anti-war movement. It’s inspiring to see groups from all corners of the globe organizing actions in support of this day. Here are some key events to put on your calendar:
