The ICAN Cities Appeal was endorsed by Brisbane City Council, Queensland, on 31st May 2022.
Made by Councillor Tracy Davis, Civic Cabinet Chair of the Environment, Parks and Sustainability Committee following a presentation from Dr Marianne Hanson (ICAN Board Member and member of the Womens International League for Peace and Freedom, Australia).
I’m very pleased today to advise that Brisbane City Council will join the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and endorse the Cities Appeal that you have presented to us. Between Council’s internal policy and your Cities Appeal, we trust that these acts of symbolism will help other local governments across the country to support in your campaign.
