Yes! The Milwaukee County Supervisors voted in favor of Resolution 21-826 - Prevent Nuclear War!

On Sept. 9, 2021, Milwaukee County Board Supervisor Steve Shea introduced Resolution 21-826 calling for the Board to endorse the Back From the Brink “Call to Prevent Nuclear War”.

Supervisor Ryan Clancy joined him to co-sponsor the resolution when it went before the Committee on Intergovernmental Relations.  (Both supervisors are long time Peace Action WI members.)  The resolution didn’t pass, it ended in a tie vote, however it will now proceed to the full board of Milwaukee County Supervisors to be voted on - by Sept 23rd!.

AND......

The Resolution passed on Sept 23, 15 to 2!

The resolution calls upon United States federal policymakers to step back from the brink of nuclear war by:

Renouncing the US’ nuclear first strike or “flexible response” policy

Removing the US’ nuclear weapons from being on “hair-trigger” or high alert

Requiring checks and balances on the President’s current sole authority to launch nuclear weapons

Canceling US replacement of entire nuclear arsenal with enhancements

Actively pursuing verifiable nuclear arms reductions between nuclear States with the goal of total nuclear disarmament

TAKE ACTION NOW and demand that the President, our two Senators and your Congressional Representatives embrace the principles of Back From The Brink  as they recognize the dangers of inaction when tasked with ridding the world of these Armageddon inducing Weapons of Mass Destruction.
