We’re bringing communities together to demand common sense policies that can prevent the growing threat that nuclear weapons pose to our health, environment, and all we hold dear.

THE CALL

The threat of nuclear war is real and growing. Global tensions are on the rise. The United States has pulled out of critical arms control agreements and is spending billions of dollars to rebuild its entire nuclear arsenal, accelerating a new arms race and diverting funds for urgently needed social, economic, and environmental programs. It is high time we change our priorities and reimagine national security to better address the challenges of the 21st century.

Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a national grassroots campaign seeking to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy and lead us away from the dangerous path we are on. The initiative lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. We are asking individuals and organizations to join the effort and help build a healthier, safer, and more just world for our children to inherit.

We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by:

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 ITS ENTIRE NUCLEAR ARSENAL WITH ENHANCED WEAPONS
ACTIVELY PURSUING A VERIFIABLE AGREEMENT AMONG NUCLEAR-ARMED STATES TO ELIMINATE THEIR NUCLEAR ARSENALS
