The Rotarian Action Group for Peace (RAGFP) endorsed the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in 2018, shortly after the UN General Assembly approved it 122 to 1. The RAGFP Subcommittee on Nuclear Weapons Education was created to provide factual information to Rotarians about the imminent human and planetary emergency with the presence of 14,000 nuclear weapons in the world. RAGFP members are serving as Civil Society Observers for the UN Nuclear Nonproliferation Meetings, tabling at events around the world, and speaking to Rotary Clubs about what they can do to prevent the purposeful, malicious, or accidental launching of nuclear weapons. All the evidence points to the abolition of nuclear weapons worldwide as the only reliable way to prevent a catastrophic threat to the planet, including nuclear winter, famine, widespread death and injury, the continuing impact for up to a million years of highly radioactive materials. We are People of Action: Educate, Eliminate
