ICAN, Two years after the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons was adopted

Posted: 7th July 2019


On July 7th, 2017 we made history together. Can you believe it’s been two years since the historic UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) was adopted? In that time, ICAN campaigners around the world have kept pushing to promote this treaty and end nuclear weapons, and they’re achieving some incredible successes. Will you join them?

The Treaty needs fifty ratifications to enter into force. With 23 ratifications (and 70 signatures) we’re almost halfway there. But we want this treaty to enter into force as quickly as possible, and we could always use more voices to help promote the treaty at a national level.

That is why we have developed a new campaigner’s guide to the signature and ratification of the TPNWIt’s an in-depth guide, full of suggestions for actions you can take to encourage your country to sign and ratify the treaty.

The Treaty itself was achieved by people like you and me, pushing together to end nuclear weapons. Together, we can achieve its entry into force and eliminate nuclear weapons for good.

Thank you for all your support,
