About Pax Christi Rhode Island
Welcome to the official page of Pax Christi Rhode Island, a community-driven organization dedicated to promoting peace, justice, and nuclear disarmament. As a branch of the international Catholic peace movement, Pax Christi International, we strive to create a world free from the threats of nuclear weapons. Our mission is to raise awareness and engage individuals and communities in advocating for disarmament initiatives.
The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)
The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), also known as the Nuclear Ban Treaty, is an international legal agreement aimed at achieving a world without nuclear weapons. It was adopted in July 2017 and came into force on January 22, 2021. The TPNW prohibits the development, testing, production, stockpiling, transfer, stationing, and use of nuclear weapons, as well as assistance or encouragement of these activities.
Celebrating the TPNW in Rhode Island
Here at Pax Christi Rhode Island, we are thrilled to celebrate the entry into force of the TPNW. This milestone brings us one step closer to a nuclear-free world, and it is crucial to recognize and support this significant achievement. We are organizing various events and initiatives to mark this occasion and raise awareness of the importance of nuclear disarmament for our global community.
Funding the Nuclear Disarmament Messaging Campaign
To effectively spread the message of nuclear disarmament and engage a wider audience, we are launching a comprehensive messaging campaign. However, organizing such an extensive campaign requires financial support. We are actively seeking assistance from individuals, organizations, and businesses who share our vision of a peaceful world. Your contributions can make a substantial impact in funding this vital campaign and raising awareness.
