2019: Bring the Heat to Congress.
We’ve cleared Congress of the most complicit.
2019 is our year to force bystanders to pick a side: You’re either with us or you’re complicit in nuclear violence. We amplify the voices of those who know we need action now, while opposing those who preserve a dangerous and unjust status quo. We go beyond rhetoric and put 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.
Our activists and local hubs are also working to pass state resolutions calling for No First Use an end to the President’s unilateral power to start nuclear war. We are continuing to enlist more champions and build the bench of Beyond the Bomb heroes.
2020: Mobilize our Mass Movement.
The danger of nuclear war was front and center in 2016. After four years of living under the nuclear shadow, 2020 is ours for the taking. We’ll make our issue so central to the political discussion that the next President — backed by an awakened and realigned Congress — will have no choice but to take bold steps to reduce the threat of nuclear war and dramatically reform the nuclear system. It all starts with implementing No First Use.
By bird-dogging candidates, organizing mass actions, and supporting get-out-the-vote efforts in key communities, we’ll make sure nuclear policy is on the forefront of the Presidential campaign issues.
2021 and Beyond: We Persist.
Elections are beginnings, not endings. It will take a steady application of pressure to ensure the new President and the Congress keep their promises to reduce our nuclear risk. We’ll stay loud. We’ll continue to lay rope with sister movements. And we’ll see you in the streets.
