NO NUKES

LOCKWOOD — The Lockwood PerSisters has signed on to support an historic effort to ban the ongoing proliferation of nuclear weapons throughout the world. On Jan. 22, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons takes effect, establishing in international law a categorical ban on nuclear weapons — 75 years after their development and first use. It is the first legally binding international agreement to comprehensively prohibit nuclear weapons, and the momentous day will be marked by actions, events and celebrations across the United States and around the world.


TOY GIVEAWAY

SALINAS VALLEY — Celebration Nation distributed thousands of toys in December to farmworker families in Salinas Valley as part of its Harvesting Toys Giveaway Campaign.

The Celebration Foundation aims to establish events nationwide to empower and support the Latino community.
