“...THE FATE OF THE WORLD AND THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN RACE, IS INVOLVED WITH PREVENTING A NUCLEAR WAR.” 

John F. Kennedy, Third Nixon-Kennedy Presidential Debate, October 13, 1960

The Call

The danger of nuclear war is real and growing — we are marching to the brink of a catastrophe that threatens all of humanity. We need to act now.

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 Call lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. We are asking individuals and organizations around the country to endorse The Call and build a national movement to get the U.S. government to adopt it as its highest national security priority. Join the campaign and help build a safer world for our children to inherit.

 

We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by:

 
 

01

Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first

02

Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. president to launch a nuclear attack

 
 

03

Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert

04

Cancelling the plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons

 
 

05

Actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals

 

 
 
 

The United States plans to spend $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years to replace its entire nuclear arsenal and build new “more usable” nuclear weapons.

You, Me, All of Us

Scientists, doctors, faith leaders, elected officials, artists, musicians, authors, working folks, organizations big and small. You, me, all of us. The Call gives everyone a simple way to speak out, be involved… and make a difference.
