NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT FOR DECADES

NOVANEWS
Dear,

Remember me?
We’ve been working on nuclear disarmament for decades.

Like a lot of you, I’ve been working to reduce our dangerous and expensive nuclear weapons stockpile for a lot of years. Remember when Jerry and I first came out with the Peace Pop, back in 1988, to call attention to the need to change our priorities?
And those of you who have been reading these emails for a while know that when I started TrueMajority we always had nuclear disarmament as a top priority. Hard to improve the world for our kids if we blow it up first!
Well, unfortunately we haven’t been making much progress for a while. In fact, the country’s stack of strategic nuclear warheads has stayed at the same crazy level for nearly 20 years.
Until now. The new nuclear arms reduction treaty which President Obama plans to sign this week with Russia’s President Medvedev will start cutting those stockpiles again. It’s a fantastic step toward closing the book on the Cold War, at last. That is, IF the Senate approves the treaty.
You’ve already signed the petition put together by our friends at Global Zero supporting this treaty. But we’ve only got a few days left until Obama’s big summit in D.C. And this is our best chance in almost 20 years to make tangible progress on cutting these weapons. Can you help spread the word by forwarding a link to this video I made?

More than 20,000 TrueMajority members have already signed on, and Global Zero will be delivering the names to world leaders next week, so make sure yours is one of them.
There will be a lot more to do before we achieve our goal of total nuclear disarmament. But this is real, and important. Making changes like this is why we started TrueMajority — so pass the message on to your friends and seize the moment.
