Dominican Sisters of Houston Corporate Position on Nuclear Disarmament

The Dominican Sisters of Houston, Texas call upon the United States government to lead the way for the global abolition of nuclear and all weapons of mass destruction by adopting a plan to lock down, reduce, and eliminate nuclear and all weapons of mass destruction. 

We call for the immediate development, adoption and implementation of a plan that will ensure that there will be no new nuclear weapons, no new materials for nuclear weapons, and no testing of nuclear weapons. 

We will work with all people of good will until there is no chance that a nuclear weapon or other weapon of mass destruction can come into the hands of anyone wishing to do harm.

Adopted: June 3, 2007


"Peacemaking is not only a central characteristic of the Gospel, peace-making is the greatest need of the world today.
We are the daughters and sons of God, and that means we are called to be peacemakers."
