Mayors for Peace


Mayors for Peace is an international association of mayors, headed by the Mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, that campaigns for the global elimination of nuclear weapons. More than 5,000 cities in more than 150 countries and regions are members, including more than 150 US cities.

On June 12, 2015, the US Conference of Mayors adopted a resolution "Calling for Effective Implementation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Disarmament Obligation and Redirection of Nuclear Weapons Spending to Meet the Needs of Cities." This marks the tenth year in a row this body has adopted such a resolute demand for nuclear disarmament. It calls on the United States to support a process to negotiate the prohibition and elimination of nuclear weapons, and cals for the successful conclusion of negotiations with Iran.
