Parliamentary Friends of the TPNW

Parliamentary Friends of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is a forum for federal parliamentarians to meet and interact with nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation advocates on matters relating to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and to discuss ways to ensure the Treaty’s success into the future.

The group was launched during the 46th Parliament in June 2020, co-chaired by Ged Kearney MP (Australian Labor Party), Ken O’Dowd MP (National Party) and Senator Jordon Steele-John (Australian Greens).

Parliamentary Friends of the TPNW was reconstituted in the 47th Parliament and launched in September 2022. It is currently co-chaired by Josh Wilson MP (Australian Labor Party), Senator Jordon Steele-John (Australian Greens) and Russell Broadbent MP (Liberal Party).
