Peace & Planet Conference Registration & Info: Eve of NPT Review April 24-25

This note is addressed to those of you who have expressed interest in our Peace & Planet organizing in the early stages of our organizing for this April’s NPT Revew events. The response to our announcements urging organizational endorsements three days ago was exceptional. Our Peace & Planet mobilizing is now running on something like all cylinders.
I am writing to let you know that our web page is now ready to process registrations for the International Peace & Planet Conference, April 24-25, which will be held at the Cooper Union. You can find the Conference Program on our web page.
About half of our plenary speakers (hailing from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the United States – including leading figures in the nuclear abolition, peace, justice and environmental movements, Hibakusha, scholars, and political figures) are now confirmed. We’ll be adding to this list in the coming weeks as we hear back from leading activists, organizers, and U.N. and allied governmental figures.
The Cooper Union’s Great Hall seats just over 800 people, and we expect to have a full house. To provide priority access to the Conference to our Coordinating and Advisory Committee organizations and those in New York playing key roles in the Mobilization, you are receiving this announcement two weeks before we began advertising Conference Registration to the wider public.
Please click here to register for the Peace & Planet Conference.
We also encourage your organization to (co-)sponsor a workshop at the Conference. To propose a workshop, please click here. And, if you have not already (and are in a position to do so), please consider adding any organizations you work with to our list of Endorsers.
Building together for a nuclear free, peaceful, just and sustainable world,
Joseph Gerson
