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. 

The Beginning and the End are in your hands, O Creator of the Universe. And in our hands you have placed the fate of this planet. We, who are tested by having both creative and destructive power in our free will, turn to you in sober fear and in intoxicating hope. We ask for your guidance and to share in your imagination in our deliberations about the use of nuclear force. Help us to lift the fog of atomic darkness that hovers so pervasively over our Earth, Your Earth, so that soon all eyes may see life magnified by your pure light.

Bless all of us who wait today for your Presence and who dedicate ourselves to achieve your intended peace and rightful equilibrium on Earth. In the Name of all that is holy and all that is hoped. Amen.

Add your voice and call for the total elimination of nuclear weapons:

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

This CC intends to be interactive throughout the world and be a force in the movement to get to zero nuclear weapons.
