Conceived and initiated by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) in the Fall of 2017, The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a collaborative effort, not to be “owned” by any single individual or organization. 

A Back From The Brink task force, which now includes representatives of Soka Gakkai International- USA,  numerous PSR chapters, United Church of Christ and the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, manages the initiative. The task force which meets monthly maintains and updates this website, works with local partners to recruit supporters and endorsements and builds support through resolutions, media efforts and engaging with local/state elected officials, members of Congress and other organizations.  If you have any questions about the Call’s task force, please contact us at

“Each of the Call’s five policy solutions are achievable and grounded in common sense and when enacted will lead to a much safer world and future for our children.”
Danny Hall, Public Affairs Director, Soka Gakkai International-USA
