Be part of the moment and the movement: Social Media Signs


January 22, 2021

Celebrate with others around the world and show your support: On January 22, 2021, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will enter into force and nuclear weapons will be illegal! Take a photo of yourself with one of these 8 1/2 x 11” signs, or make one of your own! Use the hashtags #nuclearban and #TPNW and post it on 1/22/2021 on Facebook (including on the Nuclear Ban Treaty EIF page), Twitter, Instagram and elsewhere. 

Join thousands of peace-loving people on this historic day, which the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) so eloquently describes as “the beginning of the end of nuclear weapons”!

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
