The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) is a treaty which bans nuclear testing and puts into place a verification system to alert the international community in case of a nuclear explosion. Ratification of the CTBT is expected to come up for vote in the Senate later this year. Faith leaders around Ohio are asked to support this treaty in letters to Senator Voinovich. Please contact Connie Gadell-Newton of the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) at or (614) 288-1082 and she would be happy to come speak with your Church or community group about how to get involved with this issue.
