DC Days 2018
ANA's 30th Annual DC Days will take place from May 20-23, 2018. Online registration is now open - see the registration form below.
In three days, there will about around 100 team meetings. In addition to key Senate and House offices that ANA members, as constituents, can uniquely access, we will also meet with important Committee members and staff, including Armed Services, Appropriations, and Energy Committees. There are usually meetings with the Government Accountability Office, Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, and Congressional Research Service. Executive branch meetings include the Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Office of Management and Budget, often with their senior leadership, and other departments.
This year, the Congress and administration especially needed to hear from many of us as we seek a nuclear-free future that safeguards our communities and our environment.
We will be holding a special celebration to mark our 30th consecutive DC Days. Please support this collective accomplishment by placing an ad in our 30th anniversary program. Click the donate button below to contribute.

The Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) is excited to be hosting the 30th annual DC Days from May 20-23! You will be joining activists and leaders from across the country for four days of training and advocacy. Combining education, advocacy, networking, and fun; DC Days is a unique opportunity to learn how to effectively voice your concerns about nuclear weapons, power, and waste. We will meet with and educate policy makers in Congress and the Trump Administration. DC Days provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience in political activism and advocacy. The experience and knowledge also translates into more effective activism in our home communities. It is a great way to make a difference, meet new friends, and have fun!
Student Registration is available for $85. Some funding is available for youth scholarships to cover partial costs of transportation and DC housing. Please contact your local ANA member group to apply.

2017 Report: Accountability Audit
For its 29th Annual DC Days in May 2017, the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability published a report entitled Accountability Audit. The report examines the extraordinary spending at Department of Energy nuclear facilities and examines ways to reduce risks and save billions of dollars across the U.S. nuclear weapons complex.
