The Utah Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons is a collection of concerned citizens who join a growing and diverse group of leaders and fellow citizens from across the political spectrum who believe that now is the time for the United States to lead the world in nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Toward this end we direct our mission:
- To broaden and intensify public awareness of the continuing danger of nuclear weapons, locally, nationally, and globally
- To promote public discussion about steps toward the abolition of nuclear weapons
- To encourage civic action for a nuclear weapons-free world
