MEDIA PACKET: Nuclear Ban Treaty EIF

These materials are for your use on January 22, 2021. You will want to adapt the media release, if you use it, to your site/activity. Other pieces are suitable for printing and giving to the media who come to cover your event.

The Draft Media Release is editable—designed for you to plug in your specific information and ideally a quote from someone local.


This advance media advisory went to more than 200 media outlets on January 13.


Two maps, actually, on one page. One is the nuclear weapons production complex in 2021; the other is from Schools of Mass Destruction—colleges and universities from across the US that are supporting nuclear weapons production in the US.


This simple fact sheet can be a good primer for reporters that are new to the issue of nuclear weapons and the Treaty.


Is your action on the list? And on the ican map? We will try to update this list as we get closer to Jan 22.


A broad spectrum of perspectives is represented on this list of people who have agreed to be available for media contact/interviews. There are technical people, policy people, downwinders, hibakusha, local activists and others. You can provide it to any media you work with.

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.
