LETTER TO SENATOR KING:
We in Maine have been the focus of national attention for advocacy for the New START and CTBT. Kingston Reif, the the Director of Nuclear Nonproliferation at the Center for Arms Control and Nonproliferation said "In-state grassroots activism, encouragement, and pressure (including from religious groups) in key states such as Tennessee and Maine served as a counterweight to right-wing efforts to demonize the treaty and provided encouragement to both supportive and undecided Senators."
We aim to educate ourselves and our church community, create awareness about the issues of war and peace, and develop a vision of a culture of peace. Please contact the Chair of Peace Issues for more information.
