Jeff Henigson started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

In the 1980s, I was a 15 year old fighting brain cancer, and an organization offered me a wish. I asked to travel to the Soviet Union so that I could meet with Mikhail Gorbachev and make an appeal for an end to nuclear weapons. My wish--part of it--was granted.

Today, I'm happy to have survived my cancer battle. But I'm worried, more than ever, that the world is edging closer and closer toward a nuclear disaster--with potentially devastating consequences for all of humanity.

Many Americans support arms control, but our politicians aren't hearing us. As we stay silent, they allocate billions of our tax dollars to nuclear weapons research and deployment--money that could be spent on public health, COVID relief, education, and energy solutions. At the same time, our country is withdrawing from major nuclear arms control agreements, and failing to support international agreements to prevent nuclear proliferation. The nuclear threat is growing.

Don't give up your power by staying silent. One of the most important nuclear arms control agreements, New START, is about to expire. Our President has the power to extend it, and you have the power to demand that he does. Help me make my wish come true.
