Well after what seemed like months in the making, we have finally launched the Road to Zero Tour! We are very excited to begin this tour and are anxious to hit the campus streets in Ohio, Massachusetts and Maine delivering our message and building support for a world without nuclear weapons.

We believe that this tour is essential to bring youth into the effort to achieve a world without nuclear weapons, because once the power of youth is tapped and behind this cause, extraordinary things will happen. And to help us garner that support, we are enlisting the help of a brand new documentary film that was released in theaters and will be released on DVD very soon called Countdown to Zero. It is a fantastic film that clearly and convincingly makes the case for a world without nuclear weapons. It is from the same makers of the Academy-Award winning An Inconvenient Truth and we will be screening it at campuses in the three states we will be visiting.

Here is the info. for the screenings we have booked thus far:

Ohio State – Monday, Nov. 15th @7:00pm at the Ohio Union Cartoon Room 2

Kenyon College – Tuesday, Nov. 16th @8:00pm (Location: TBD)

If you are at any of these campuses, come on out to these free screenings and find out more. However, we have an added bonus, because if you help us promote the screenings and help us get people to sign postcards to their Senators demanding they support a world without nuclear weapons, you’ll get a $100 stipend! Not to mention a free t-shirt, button and sticker! If you’re interested, e-mail patrick@aidemocracy.org

We are in the process of booking screenings in the Boston area and Portland, Maine area, so if you live or go to school in these places, contact Patrick (e-mail above) and help us reserve a room at your school. We’ll be in those areas between Nov. 17th to Nov. 23rd. and all you would need to do is get a room for us, simple as that!
