On Wednesday, December 19, 2018 we handed off more than 300 signatures collected on the petition drafted by Greater Lansing United Nations Association and the Peace Education Center to prevent nuclear war. Based upon a Union of Concerned Scientists report we asked for six specific actions:
1) Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first
2) Renouncing any use of nuclear missiles in conventional warfare
3) Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. president to launch a nuclear attack
4) Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
5) Cancelling a plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons
6) Actively pursuing verifiable agreement among nuclear armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals
