Humanity & Inclusion needs your help. On January 31, President Donald Trump reversed an Obama Administration policy, allowing the U.S. military to again use landmines in conflicts, and also to develop new ones.
More than 70% of landmine victims are civilians. In 2018, landmines killed 3,059 and injured 3,837 people. And 54% of civilian casualties were CHILDREN. With landmines impacting communities in more than 60 countries and territories, the danger is very real.
The last thing our world needs is more landmines!
164 countries have joined the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, which prohibits the use, stockpiling, production, and transfer of anti-personnel landmines. In 1997, the U.S. participated in the Ottawa process to ban landmines, but never adopted or signed it.
Take action today and send a message to President Trump: abandon your dangerous landmine policy!
