Campaigners Update: September 2018

Dear Campaigners,

Welcome to the first edition of the ICAN Monthly Newsletter! We hope that this will be a space in which to present work being undertaken by partners, outputs from monthly ISG meetings, and information about upcoming dates or activities.

It’s easy to lose track of all the things things that your fellow campaigners are doing around the world and to have an overview of the amazing progress we are making with the ban treaty. We hope that this newsletter will provide a snapshot overview of what’s happened over the past month and what we’re looking ahead to in the weeks to come.

The best way to feature your work here is to make sure that you send your updates to the ICAN Campaigners List! That’s where we’ll look first when we pull the newsletter together, so make sure you’re diligent about reporting back on what you’ve done, even if it’s just a short email. 🙂

It’s also good to keep track of what’s being written about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in the different corners of the globe. The newsletter will therefore also provide some suggested readings and useful new resources that have crossed our radars over the past month.

As you know, ICAN has a governance body called the International Steering Group (ISG), which is responsible for the strategic planning, fundraising and the general financial stability/sustainability of the campaign. The ISG has a meeting (over the phone) every month to discuss issues relevant to its mandate. To provide a bit of insight into what the ISG discusses, we’ll provide some notes in the monthly newsletter about any decisions taken, updates shared, etc. in those meetings. If you have any questions you’d like to address to the ISG, please send Daniel (daniel@icanw.org) an email.

We in the staff really hope that this Newsletter is a useful resource for all of us in the campaign!

All the best,

Beatrice, Liz, Lucero, Stuart, Tim and Daniel

PS: Update your files: ICAN now has 532 partner organizations in 103 countries!

What have we been up to?

  • First Committee is coming up! Reaching Critical Will has just released their annual First Committee briefing book
