Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons is composed of dynamic voices from across the political, professional, spiritual, and geographical spectrums who have united in a single purpose: to eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all.
To learn more about the goals of this group read our important statement on the about Nuclear Disarmament, Call to Conscience: A Ban on Nuclear Weapons. You can also browse our Resources on Nuclear Disarmament.
Far more important than putting a man on the Moon or on Mars is the importance of keeping humans from annihilating all forms of life on Earth through a nuclear attack. This ultimate dread can happen in a matter of days, not over ages. Nuclear weapons have been created, tested, used, stored, aimed and readied for action for the supposed benefit of a few even if they pose a threat of extinction for all. Thus the existence of nuclear weapons is much more than a political strategy. At its core it is a moral, spiritual and environmental issue which urgently begs the intense attention of all the people of the world’s religions, indigenous traditions and humanist spiritualities. - The Rt. Rev. William E. Swing, member of Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons CC, and Founder and President of URI
