The Time is Now: Reduce the Threat of Nuclear Weapons

This petition had 4,325 supporters

In an historic speech in Prague earlier this year, President Barack Obama articulated a bold new approach to addressing the threat posed by nuclear weapons.  

Although the cold war ended some 20 years ago, Obama is the first U.S. president to commit to making significant changes in U.S. nuclear weapons policy to reflect new global realities.

President Obama's pragmatic steps toward peace include negotiating a new arms reduction treaty with Russia and seeking Senate approval for the treaty that bans test explosions of nuclear weapons. These steps will reduce the likelihood that more nations and terrorists will acquire nuclear weapons and make the world safer.

These treaties will face strong opposition in the Senate, and we need your help to gain your senators' support. Please write today and urge your senators to work toward reducing the threat posed by nuclear weapons.
