JUN 17, SAT: Women’s March to Ban the Bomb!
Led by women, everybody included!

Join us on Saturday Jun 17:

Women’s March to Ban the Bomb!

(led by women, everybody included)

Make nuclear weapons illegal! The UN General Assembly is negotiating a treaty to ban nuclear weapons, just as land mines have successfully been banned. Nations in the “nuclear club”, including the U.S., are opposing the treaty.

Nukes don’t keep us safe! They endanger our cities, pollute our lands, and drain our treasury.

Demand that nuclear-armed nations, including our, join UN negotiations to BAN THE BOMB.

Join us! Here’s why! (video, 3 min)

AUG 20, THURS, 7 pm: Town Hall Meeting and Dialogue on the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) with Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and others

What’s the latest on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)?
Is it free? fair? fake? toxic?

Join Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, a representative of Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, NY State Senator Jesse Hamilton, and others, to question, learn, discuss, and share:
Who would gain? Who Would lose? What are the latest developments in these so-called trade negotiations? What can we do?

Congress has voted to move forward with “Fast Track” for the TPP.  When the negotiations (now being conducted in secret) are complete, the TPP will come before Congress for an up-or-down vote.  If it is ultimatley passed, the TPP will affect many aspects of our lives, and the lives of people in other counries.  It will drastically increase the social and economic inequalities which lead to war.
