Dear _________,

The current threat of nuclear war by Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin reminds us that at any time we face nuclear annihilation either by conflict or accident. The United Nations Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons now is in force. This treaty makes it illegal to possess or transfer nuclear weapons. It has been approved by 145 nations. Its passage by the United States has now been urged by 66 US cities, counties and states. We need Albuquerque to join them! Please cosponsor and vote to approve a Memorial by the Albuquerque City Council in support of the Treaty.

Sincerely,
(Your Constituent)
or
(Albuquerque Citizen)

PDACNM Community Gathering Video – March 2022

Speakers:
Archbishop John C.Wester – Archbishop of Santa Fe
Jay Coghlan of NukeWatch NM Abolishing Nuclear Weapons

PDACNM is honored to welcome Archbishop John C. Wester, Archbishop of Santa Fe to our monthly gathering. His courage in speaking out against the proliferation of nuclear weapons inspires us at PDACNM to follow his example and continue the fight against this peril, especially given the threat of a possible imminent war between two nuclear powers.

Jay Coghlan, executive director of Nuclear Watch New Mexico, has worked successfully against radioactive incineration at the Los Alamos National Lab, and in Clean Air Act, Freedom of Information Act and National Environmental Policy Act lawsuits against the Department of Energy. He prompted a 2006 independent study that concluded plutonium pits last at least a century, refuting the NNSA’s assertion that we “need” new-design nuclear weapons and expanded plutonium pit production.
