Over the past three years, the Arms Control Association and its allies have catalyzed significant momentum for nuclear disarmament.
But big challenges remain. There is more that we can and must do to prevent the use and spread of nuclear weapons and to achieve a world without nuclear weapons--for our generation and the generations to come.
That's why I'm asking you once again to help support ACA's vital work with a generous, tax-deductible, online contribution of $50, $100, $250, $500 or more.
Your support will enable ACA to inform and influence pivotal policy decisions in 2012 that could open the door to dramatic progress in the years ahead. These include:
And of course, ACA will also take advantage of other opportunities in 2012. We will continue to build support for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty; promote creative strategies to halt fissile material production; renew efforts to contain North Korea's nuclear ambitions; track efforts to secure vulnerable nuclear material; and push for the negotiation of an effective conventional Arms Trade Treaty; and more.
Your tax-deductible contribution will give you and others access to the leading journal in the field, Arms Control Today, and help us continue to raise public awareness, inform the news media, hold policymakers accountable, dispel arms control myths, and promote effective policy solutions.
With ACA's hard-working professional staff, our network of experts, and our strong reputation among lawmakers and opinion leaders, ACA succeeds in making a positive difference.
That's why the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation recognized ACA earlier this year as one of the few "exceptional organizations that effectively address pressing national and international challenges and that have had an impact that is disproportionate to their small size."
But in order to maintain our high level of impact, we need your continuing support. Now.
ACA's budget is stretched to the limit. Our low overhead costs allows us to put our resources into programs, not fundraising and administration. We make the most of each individual contribution.
Thank you for your past and continued support.
Daryl G. Kimball,
P.S. A contribution of $65 or more in a year gives you access to an individual print and digital subscription to Arms Control Today.
