Who: Beyond the Bomb and partners from United Against Nuclear War

Where: Begin at the Roundhouse & continue on to the Santa Fe Plaza
In the 1980s, Americans took to the streets en masse to say “Enough is enough” and push Reagan to the table with the Soviet Union. The Nuclear Freeze movement led to the establishment of a number of treaties aimed at preventing nuclear war – but, those treaties are now under threat and we still have a lot of work to do to end the global threat of nuclear violence.
We are proud to partner with the Women’s March to stand in solidarity with oppressed communities here in the U.S. and draw attention to the ever-important issue of nuclear war. Indigenous and low-income communities of color are disproportionately impacted by our nuclear system by living near nuclear storage sites, on land where nuclear weapons were tested, or near mines for nuclear materials. We will march on January 19th so mothers do not have to fear the effects of radiation on their reproductive choices and on their loved ones. Our contingent will stand united and call for the United States to protect our sisters abroad who would be victims of the U.S. militarism on a mass scale in the event of a nuclear detonation.
Every voice makes a difference. When we join together and lift each other’s voices, we become a wave too powerful to ignore, too powerful to sweep aside, and too powerful to drown out. The #WomensWave is coming. On January 19, 2019 we march.
When we come together, we can accomplish amazing things!
