The global arms and ammunition trade is out of control, fueling armed conflict that threatens the security and rights of people around the world on a daily basis. Next week, world leaders and their negotiating teams will gather at the UN in New York to hammer out the international Arms Trade Treaty.
Now is the time for the Arms Trade Treaty. A bulletproof treaty – and the safety it can bring to families around the world – is a vital part of the fight against poverty and injustice. With it, we can help save lives, prevent human rights abuses, and protect the livelihoods of people around the world.
President Obama needs to hear from you now: Ask him to support a strong Arms Trade Treaty that will save lives and make the world a safer place.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Oxfam America.
Dear President Obama:
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
