Come to a light meal and round-table talk on Friday, Jan. 20, 6-8 pm. We’ll gather at Cherith Brook Catholic Worker House—in the heart of KC MO—at 3226 E. 12th Street.

Bring your vision of a nuclear-weapon-free world—perhaps a world with free college, with food for all, with health care as it’s needed, with reasonably priced homes for low-income/no-income folks. Bring your imagination. Instead of spending billions on nuclear weapons, we could channel funds to sustain our Earth and all of us. Your answer to our question—what could a nuke-free world look like?—can be a statement (2 minutes or less), a poem, a picture, a joke, or any other creative rendition.

How did PeaceWorks pick mid-January for this event? “We are celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the world’s first treaty TOTALLY BANNING nuclear weapons,” says Ann Suellentrop, of the PeaceWorks Board and of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “We are trying to correct the great harm that nuclear weapons production and testing has done to people and Mother Earth.” So far, the treaty has 68 states parties and 91 signatories.

Cosponsors of this 2023 event are PeaceWorks KC, Cherith Brook Catholic Worker, St. Lawrence Catholic Worker, Greens KC, Physicians for Social Responsibility KC, Code Pink KC, and Veterans for Peace KC.

For more info on our meal and sharing on Jan. 20, contact Charles Carney of the PeaceWorks Board, 913-603-2483, donnacharles_1@sbcglobal.net. No reservations needed for this event. Y’all come!
