Nuclear Free World Committee

The Nuclear Free World Committee, formerly Peace Action of Central New York, works to fulfill a vision of a world free from the threat of war and nuclear weapons, where resources are directed to human and environmental needs. We are an affiliate of Peace Action, the nation's largest grassroots peace and justice organization.

Current campaigns

2017 found us in a dismal legislative environment, with a very dangerous president. We're working to change that. Learn more.

1. Take Trump's finger off the nuclear trigger. Support the petition campaign urging our federal representatives to sign onto the Markey (S200) and Lieu (HR669) bill to require a declaration of war from Congress before nuclear weapons can be used first.

2. "Don't Bank on the Bomb" - National divestment campaign. Read more about local divestment action.

The Nuclear Free World Committee and the Syracuse Peace Council are also members of the Alliance for a Green Economy (AGREE), a statewide effort to shut down nuclear power plants and replace them with environmentally safer and greener energy sources, a 100% renewable energy supply.
