“P.S.A.L.M.” (Proud Students Against Land Mines and Cluster Bombs) are working members of the West Virginia, United States, International Campaign to Ban Landmines and the Cluster Munition Coalition. Students are encouraged to dream of a more just and peaceful world and to make that world a reality. The students use their skills and talents to not only learn about these important issues, but to facilitate change for a better world. They are empowered to truly make a difference! These students donate their time, talent and energy because they care about children and want to work for a more just and peaceful world. In 2013 we celebrated our 14th year as PSALM/West Virginia Campaign to Ban Landmines! In 2006, we expanded our mission to include advocacy toward a prohibition on the use, production, and transfer of cluster munitions that cause unacceptable harm to civilians.
The mission of PSALM/WVCBL is three-fold:
#1 To raise public awareness about landmines and cluster munitions
#2 To offer humanitarian assistance to landmine/cluster bomb survivors through our service projects and to raise awareness about survivor’s issues.
#3 To encourage ALL countries, especially the United States, to sign the treaties banning the production, use and stockpiling of these weapons.
Inititated by students, the West Virginia Campaign to Ban Landmines/PSALM is an internationally recognized grass-roots organization that began as a social justice art project. Today, our supporters include community leaders, activists and politicians. Through peaceful discussion and persistence we will not stop working until all countries have banned landmines and cluster bombs. PLEASE JOIN US …
Please join us in urging our NATIONAL leaders to join the MINE BAN TREATY and CONVENTION ON CLUSTER MUNITIONS.
