The Washington Against Nuclear Weapons Coalition will host the People’s Town Hall on Nuclear Weapons on Sept 29. This conversation informs the public and elected officials about the damage and dangers of nuclear war, examining Washington’s nuclear arsenals and the role of our state’s industry in producing them. People from communities that have been directly impacted by the long legacy of the nuclear weapons industry in Washington State will gather together to share their testimonies. Although invited, neither WA Senator decided to attend, even though nearly half the total US nuclear arsenal is in the state of Washington.
On October 1, join WANW Coalition, Seattle Anti-War Coalition and others as we expose the connection between nuclear weapons and WA State and present the results of the People’s Town Hall to WA Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray. We will present recommendations for their action in Congress on nuclear weapons policy and share our sense of urgency for nuclear justice.
We will rally outside the Federal Building, hold a press conference, address the public and share our testimonies, then deliver the People’s Town Hall results to the Senators in their offices at the Federal Building.
