Abolition 2000 – Global Network to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

Mayors for Peace Working Group

Working to enroll mayors around the world to work for a nuclear weapons convention. Increasingly, cities have been reaching out to each other across national boundaries to address global threats to their citizens. One such organization is the World Conference of Mayors for Peace, which will provide the initial leadership for this campaign. We seek to encourage other mayors’ groups to become engaged, and will coordinate closely with them.
