Our petition, 'Keep Trump's Finger Off the Button: Take Our Nuclear Missiles Off Hair Trigger Alert', has been delivered to President Barack Obama. Thank you to all who signed and to all who shared. Currently, over 100,000 people have signed the petition, and more than 10,000 have left comments about why they have done so. These were by far the most common reasons people gave for signing our petition:
- a lack of trust in the the President-elect
- fear of the President-elect
- to protect families
- a desire for better and safer nuclear weapons policy
- a committment to peace in the world
- a passion for democracy
We delivered the petition to President Obama electronically, and because of that, there is still time to sign: change.org/endhairtrigger.
We have offered the President the opportunity to respond to you directly, but either way, we will inform you of his response — and we will not stop fighting for saner nuclear policies, until eventually nuclear weapons are effectively eliminated from the planet.
We encourage everyone to learn more about the issue and to stay involved. If you'd like to stay current on progress we're making toward reducing, and eventually eliminating, nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons threats, sign up here: bit.ly/pfundemail
