Dominican Sisters Carol Gilbert, OP, and Ardeth Platte, OP, were present at the United Nations for nearly five weeks this past summer joining witnesses and representatives testifying and advocating for a worldwide prohibition of nuclear weapons.
Sisters Gilbert, OP, and Ardeth, OP, have dedicated their lives to raising their voices for justice and global peace. Don’t miss hearing their story and perspective on the global community’s response toward nuclear disarmament.
More than 70 years have passed since the first nuclear weapons were dropped on Japan. The devastation horrified the world. And yet, the threat of nuclear action remains all too present.
Voices sounding the global alarm have also been present. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a collaborative of hundreds of peace organizations. It has dedicated its work to drawing the world’s attention to the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences of any use of nuclear weapons.
On July 7, 2017, following a decade of advocacy by ICAN and its partners, an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations adopted a landmark global agreement to ban nuclear weapons named the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
As a result, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to ICAN for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of nuclear weapons.
