Tell Your Senators to Ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT)
On September 24, 1996, the United States was the first nation to sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which would ban all nuclear test explosions or other nuclear explosions anywhere. Unfortunately, even as we are approaching the 15th anniversary of the signing, the CTBT is languishing in limbo until the US and 8 other nations ratify it. Ratifying this treaty is an important step on the road to a world free of all nuclear weapons. We must take action to push our Senators to approve the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), which prohibits all nuclear test explosions.
Join activists from across the country the week of September 24th and write your senators to urge the ratification of the CTBT.

Letter (Copy and Paste OR Modify)
Hon. Senator ________,
September 24th is the 15th anniversary of the signing of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). However, 15 years later, the United States has still not ratified this important international agreement.
I am writing to urge you to consider the evidence supporting ratification of the CTBT. There is no reason for the U.S. to resume testing. The United States will be more secure once all nations are prohibited from conducting nuclear tests and we can improve our ability to detect, deter, and confront proliferators. That can only occur once the U.S. Senate approves the CTBT and it enters into force.
Please consider the scientific and national security benefits of a test ban as the Senate consults with the President and begins to revisit ratification of the CTBT.
The time for the CTBT is now. Please write your fellow senators today, and urge them to make the world safer from the threat of nuclear weapons.
