Our Solutions

Back from the Brink is a US-based grassroots coalition of individuals, organizations and elected officials working together toward a world free of nuclear weapons and advocating for common sense nuclear weapons policies to secure a safer, more just future. We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by:
Actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals
Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first
Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. President to launch a nuclear attack
Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
Cancelling the plan to replace the entire U.S. nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons

You, Me, All of Us

Nuclear weapons threaten all of us, everything, our future, all we hold dear. They are inherently unjust. Their production, testing, and waste continue to disproportionately harm communities of color. The elimination of nuclear weapons is deeply linked to other pressing concerns such as racial and economic justice, militarism, preserving our democracy, and confronting climate change. 

All people deserve to be safe and to have a voice in decisions affecting their security. Back from the Brink gives everyone a simple way to speak out, be involved, and make a difference. Individuals, organizations, municipalities. Activists, elected officials, scientists, doctors, faith leaders, veterans, students, artists, working folks. You, me, all of us.

Together we are making “nuclear weapons a local issue” and connecting them with the real-life security and safety concerns that people and communities face every day.
