Our meetings with local officials. PSR Arizona board members participated in legislative action Zoom meetings with the offices of Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick and Senators Krysten Sinema and Mark Kelly; state legislators; city council members; and even to support climate and environmental-related and security legislation, promoting, for example, outdoor worker heat protection bills; environmental jobs and justice; regional haze reduction; expansion of electric vehicles and the infrastructure to support them; promotion of clean, safe, renewable energy, and elimination of nuclear weapons.


Board vice chair Rick Graap created the bumper sticker pictured below. It is in line with the progress we are making on banning nuclear weapons. Note that the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons bans “the development, testing, production, manufacture, acquisition, possession or stockpiling, transfer, control, or receipt, use or threat to use, stationing or deployment of nuclear weapons.” To date, 86 nations have signed on to this treaty and 55 have ratified the treaty.  Now we need to get the US to sign on!  See www.icanw.org
