On the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, religious people from a variety of traditions came together and formed a new group committed to building a world free of nuclear weapons. The Churches’ Center for Theology and Public Policy and the Fourth Freedom Forum committed to staffing this new organization, and Rev. William Sloane Coffin provided the vision.
Faithful Security is a multifaith coalition dedicated to raising the voice of U.S. religious communities toward a world free of nuclear weapons.
WHO ARE WE?
Faithful Security’s partners range from Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and interfaith groups. We are also proud to ally with a wide range of local religious organizations who share our vision, and numerous individual people of faith.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The goal of Faithful Security is to work toward the permanent elimination of nuclear weapons by empowering religious communities to take action on a local level. It is our hope to provide you with the resources you need to learn about the nuclear weapons danger and take action to build a safer world for all of our brothers and sisters.
We aim to connect you with films, fact sheets, and other resources to help you speak out about the need to break faith with nuclear weapons. Obviously we can’t do this alone. It will take all of us-Jewish, Protestant, Shinto, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist-and everyone who believes that human life is sacred.
