The WILPF Australia “Cities and Towns” campaign is on the trail around regional Queensland to help end nuclear weapons and make our communities safe.

WILPF Qld members Delene Cuddihy and Valerie Joy have created a full itinerary taking the “end nuclear weapons” message to Townsville, Hughendon, Mt Isa, Winton and Longreach.

The two women have been successful in gaining personal meetings with CEOs or Mayors of a number of key regional towns including Mt Isa. Their aim is to inform local councils about relevance of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons’ (ICAN) Cities Appeal, and have cities and regional towns take a stand for the safety of their communities.

Next step is to have each council sign the Cities Appeal – and to help move Australia towards signing the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

These WILPF women are in action and living their passion as so many WILPF foremothers have done over the last 105 years.

Great work Delene and Valerie! We can’t wait to hear about the next steps.
