1/22: Anniversary of the TPNW

Along with today being our 2023 Annual Meeting, did you know that 1/22 is the anniversary of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)?

The TPNW, or the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty, is the first legally binding international agreement to comprehensively prohibit nuclear weapons with the ultimate goal being their total elimination. It was adopted on July 7th, 2017; opened for signature on September 20th, 2017; and entered into force on January 22nd, 2021.
