Purpose: ICAN is a global campaign coalition working to mobilize people in all countries to inspire, persuade and pressure their governments to initiate and support negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. The campaign was launched in 2007, and now has more than 400 partner organizations in 95 countries.
ICAN is a broad, inclusive campaign, informed by the need, urgency and feasibility of abolishing nuclear weapons, and focused on mobilizing civil society around the specific objective of negotiating a global nuclear weapons abolition treaty. It has a steering group, staff team and partner organizations.
ICAN operates on a partnership model. Any organization that agrees with the campaign#s aims and does not use or advocate violence may become an ICAN partner organization. Partners pledge to promote the objective of a treaty banning nuclear weapons and identify publicly with the campaign.
