Civil society and communities impacted by nuclear weapons played a major role in achieving the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Our strong engagement, expertise and advocacy is part of the treaty's strength and helped create its unique articles that prohibits nuclear weapons, provides victim assistance, gender analysis and environmental remediation.
That's why you should be a part of the first Meeting of States Parties (MSP) taking place in Vienna, in March next year.
In recent years, we've seen a shrinking space for civil society around the world. The pandemic has been used to limit access to key international meetings (just think of the recent access problems at COP26). But for the first MSP of this Treaty, we can reverse that trend and we need your help to do it.

ICAN need to raise $40’000 by December 31st, to make this the most inclusive UN meeting to date. We will show the world what an inclusive and modern multilateral process looks like.
To do this right, we need funds for logistical and technical tools to ensure full participation of impacted communities, scientists, experts and civil society organisation - no matter if they're physically in Vienna or not. This Giving Tuesday, will you pitch in to make it possible? <[link removed]>
To make sure that you and everyone else around the world can influence and shape the first MSP, we’ll have to level up far beyond a Zoom call. We’re planning to use the funds to do things like:
• Provide daily interactive updates from Vienna;
• Develop opportunities to engage and contribute to the government conference from home;
• Organise interactive hybrid events from all over the world, and more...
ICAN's talented network of campaigners and activist know how to make massive global actions out of online, offline and hybrid events. Can we count on you to help us raise $40'000 for this? <[link removed]>Every contribution, small or large, will help us make the first meeting of states parties a great success for nuclear disarmament and set a new standard for civil society engagement in UN processes.
It’s time to end nuclear weapons.
