Mission

Founded in 2017, The Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security advocates for peace and nuclear disarmament with justice. Our priorities include working for nuclear weapons abolition and common security diplomacy among the great powers. CPDCS serves as a bridge between peace and nuclear disarmament movements in U.S., Asia, and Europe and contributes to intersectional organizing.

We produce resources, organize conferences and forums, and provide speakers on these and related subjects.

Our program work includes:

Lead organizer of Two Minutes to Midnight conference in New York City that featured speakers including Sergio Duarte, Daniel Ellsberg, Christine Hong, Zia Mian, Noam Chomsky and Medea Benjamin.
