Women Appeal for a Ceasefire, Ending the Threat of Nuclear War and for Peace
Add your name to the women appeal for a ceasefire, ending the threat of nuclear war and for peace!
This appeal was written by American women participating in a Women Transforming Our Nuclear Legacy dialogue and peacebuilding initiative.
To: People Around the World
We are women who are heartbroken over the war in Ukraine and deeply concerned about the risk of catastrophic nuclear war.
We are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and we are sisters, one to another.
Today our hearts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine and with everyone suffering and traumatized by this war.
We appeal to world leaders for the sake of humanity to implement an immediate ceasefire.
We appeal to you to stop the killing, stop the bloodshed, and to resolve this conflict through dialogue and diplomacy to put an end to this war.
We need more diplomacy, not more weapons and war.
We are in the most dangerous moment of the nuclear age since the Cuban Missile Crisis, with extreme tensions between the United States and Russia who together possess over 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons. A nuclear war would mean the end of life as we know it, of all we love and cherish on this planet. We worry that events could spiral out of control and lead to an escalation to nuclear war due to accident, blunder, miscalculation or mistake.
For the sake of our children, for the sake of future generations, we women appeal for peace.
Please join us. (Everyone Welcome!)
