President Obama, take action now to move us closer to a world free of nuclear weapons

Every President gets one significant opportunity to revise and update U.S. nuclear weapons strategy. Now President Obama has this opportunity and is developing guidance that will determine the role and the number of U.S. nuclear weapons.  

This guidance affects everything from war plans to the size, structure and cost of the nuclear arsenal. It will help determine whether we continue to live with the threat of nuclear annihilation by accident or by design--or move closer to a world free of the danger of nuclear war.

Now is our opportunity to make our voices heard, to press President Obama to make good on his pledge to “put an end to Cold War thinking” and pursue further, dramatic steps that would make us all safer from the threat of nuclear weapons. Please join thousands of Americans by adding your voice.

      Simply because the world would be safer without them. And the resources spent on them could be directed to making our societies healthier and better places to live.
