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

Who’s on Board?

Organizations

Local & State Elected Officials

Municipalities

State legislative bodies

You, Me, All of Us

Nuclear weapons threaten every living creature on the planet. As part of a system built on colonialism, violence, and racism, nuclear weapons are also inherently unjust. They are designed to kill masses of people indiscriminately and to frighten other countries into submission. Nuclear weapons production, testing, and waste continues to disproportionately harm communities of color. The U.S. spends tens of billions annually on nuclear weapons, siphoning tax dollars from communities and making us less, not more, safe.

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.
