We are working to ensure that the United States comprehensively bans antipersonnel landmines and accedes to the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty.

The United States Campaign to Ban Landmines is a coalition of non-governmental organizations working to ensure that the U.S. comprehensively prohibits antipersonnel mines--by banning their use in Korea--and joins the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, as more than 160 nations have done. It is the national affiliate of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), founded in New York in 1992 and recipient of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate together with former ICBL coordinator Ms. Jody Williams of Vermont. We also call for sustained U.S. government financial support for mine clearance and victim assistance. 

The U.S. Campaign to Ban Landmines is coordinated by Legacies of War and its Steering Committee members include: 

Amnesty International USA

Arms Control Association

Center for Civilians in Conflict

Friends Committee on National Legislation

Human Rights Watch

Humanity & Inclusion 

Physicians for Human Rights


West Virginia Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munitions / Proud Students Against Landmines
