On January 22, 2023, the second anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW or “Nuclear Ban Treaty”), 120 organizations and over 1,000 individuals signed a letter to President Biden, giving him six compelling reasons why he can, and should, sign this treaty now and lead the way to a world free of nuclear weapons. You can read the full letter here, or the 1 page summary version here.
Now an entire year has gone by and we haven’t received a reply – not even an acknowledgement of receipt! Please write to President Biden yourself and ask him why he hasn’t responded to this request. Below is a draft letter you can send, based on just one of the six compelling reasons we gave him for joining the Nuclear Ban Treaty. Feel free to add to this and/or come up with compelling reasons of your own, just be sure to urge President Biden to sign this treaty!
Please enter your address and phone number if not already on file. Choose whether or not you want to be added to a mailing list. Then edit the letter below to make it as personal as you can. Add a sentence at the beginning about why you personally are concerned about threat posed by nuclear weapons, how long you have been concerned, and/or what else you have done to express your concern.
You have been randomly given a template containing one of the six compelling reasons for President Biden to sign this treaty, but if you prefer to focus on a different reason, or a reason of your own, feel free to focus on that. The more you can personalize the letter and make it different from others, the more likely it will get read!
