URGENT –Make US Leadership to Abolish Nuclear Weapons a Top Ten Idea to Change America

Dear Friends,

Here’s a chance to really make a difference.

The website Change.org is holding a contest to choose the ten best ideas for change in America.  Out of more than 7,500 proposals and more than 250,000 votes, our idea for “US Leadership to Abolish Nuclear Weapons Globally” has made it to the final round with some 90 other ideas.  People from throughout America and around the world will be voting in the final round to choose the top ten ideas from 8:00 a.m. EST on January 5th until 5:00 p.m. EST on January 15th.

The top ten ideas selected will be promoted to the Obama administration and to the public, beginning with an event at the National Press Club on January 16th.

We ask you to take three steps now to help make Nuclear Weapons Abolition an idea whose time has come.

1. VOTE:  Even if you voted in the first round, you must vote again in this final round to be counted.  To vote, click here to go to our idea for change: http://www.change.org/ideas/view/us_leadership_to_abolish_nuclear_weapons_globally, then click on the vote button.  (If you haven’t already signed up at Change.org, you will be prompted to put in your name, email and a password that you choose.  After signing up, press the vote button again.)

2. FORWARD THIS MESSAGE: Send this message to everyone on your email list with a personal note of encouragement from you.  Every vote counts and for our idea to succeed it is really important for each of us to mobilize our own personal networks.

3. CALL TEN PEOPLE: Call the ten people you know who are most likely to be influential in getting out the vote, give them a heads-up that you’ve sent this message to them, and ask for their help.

We’ve never had a better chance to raise the profile of Nuclear Weapons Abolition and make real progress toward achieving it.  Nor have we ever had a new president coming to Washington who is more receptive to the public on this issue.  Now is our time.  Your involvement now can help make a critical difference on this issue that will affect the future of all humanity.  Every vote matters.  With your help we can make Nuclear Weapons Abolition an idea whose time has come.

Your help can make all the difference.
