Reducing Nuclear Dangers in 2018

Arms Control NOW

It's been a tumultuous year, and your support has made an enormous difference to the work of the Arms Control Association.  In 2018, you can count on us to continue advancing common sense solutions to today's nuclear challenges.

We hope you will keep us in your giving plans as you make your final end-of-year contributions.

Your donation—whether its $25, $100, $250, or more—really makes a difference.

Through our one-of-a-kind journal, Arms Control Today, plus our policy briefings, reports, and outreach programs for the public, the press, and policy-makers, your contributions give us an impact that is disproportionate to our modest size.

  • In 2017, we highlighted the need to change Cold War strategies that give the president unchecked nuclear launch authority, including the possible first use of nuclear weapons.
  • We've continued to lead efforts to defend and build upon the successful Iran nuclear deal against efforts by some to unravel it.
  • We've been a strong advocate for engaging in direct talks with North Korea to halt and reverse its dangerous pursuits and a leading voice against reckless tweets that could trigger a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.
  • We’ve engaged senior U.S. and Russian officials to outline solutions to preserve and strengthen key U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control agreements, such as the INF Treaty.
  • We have and will continue to push back against the Trump administration's proposals to expend the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. military strategy and for new “more usable” nuclear weapons.
  • We are proud to have played a part in the process leading to the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and will continue to try to bring treaty skeptics, supporters, and opponents together around an effective plan of action to reduce the number and role of nuclear weapons as we approach the 50th anniversary of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.

In 2018, your contribution will allow us to expand and improve these efforts to inform, influence, and inspire action to eliminate the threats posed by the world's most dangerous weapons.
