DC Days 2016: Register Today
The Alliance for Nuclear Accountability's 27th Annual DC Days will take place from April 17-20, 2016. Over 50 activists, from newcomers to experienced hands, will hold nearly 100 meetings with congressional and executive branch offices. In addition to key Senate and House offices that ANA members, as constituents, can uniquely access, the Alliance targets the key Armed Services and Appropriations Committees and the congressionally-chartered Government Accountability Office and Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board. Executive branch meetings include the Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the State Department, the EPA, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Office of Management and Budget, often with their senior leadership.
Sunday, April 17 will be a training day for both old and newcomers, followed by three days of congressional and administration meetings.
Registration and more information is available here.
The Growing U.S. Nuclear Threat
The Alliance for Nuclear Accountability's latest report, "The Growing U.S. Nuclear Threat," examines many of the United States' current and planned nuclear "modernization" programs at Department of Energy sites around the country.
The Department of Energy's (DOE) budget for nuclear weapons activities is set to increase this year as in years past. The increased spending will undermine efforts to make the nation more secure. New, provocative investments in weapons programs and infrastructure will undermine non-proliferation efforts and introduce uncertainties to the U.S. stockpile. At the same time, cuts to the cleanup budget and failure to hold DOE and the NNSA accountable leave health risks unaddressed, environmental damage unrepaired, and urgent waste challenges unmet.

We work to oppose our massive nuclear weapons complex. This expensive and dangerous choice is something we can change.
