Your guide to navigating the 2020 election
We know, it’s been a wild year. But, we’re in the home stretch — and that means we’re that much closer to November 3.
We have a plan to move our world beyond the bomb — a plan that needs everybody. We are digging deep in Congressional districts all over the country, making ending nuclear violence a mainstay issue of the Presidential election, and ensuring that our elected leaders keep their promises and build the future we envision.
Our representatives and candidates for office need to know we won’t stand for increased funding for weapons and a continuation of our undemocratic nuclear system. Beyond the Bomb is going beyond rhetoric and putting our full organizing power behind legislative measures, like No First Use, that lower the odds these hideous weapons are unleashed in an act of fire and fury.
This fall and beyond, you can get involved by becoming informed on what No First Use is and why it’s important, take action by writing a letter to the editor or meeting with your reps, spreading our message, and voting! Check out the below resources:
