Over 300 Local and State Elected Officials Across 41 States Call on Biden, Congress to Take Bold Action on Nuclear Weapons
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 urgently needed for 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 everyone – individuals, organizations, municipalities, government bodies, civic leaders and elected officials – to join this effort.
A safer, healthier, and more just world is possible. We celebrate the entry into force of the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), an historic treaty signed by 122 nations that bans nuclear weapons under international law in the same manner as biological and chemical weapons. The TPNW is the international mechanism for the elimination of nuclear weapons. Back from the Brink provides a U.S. roadmap to accomplish this goal.
