DC Days 2017
The Alliance for Nuclear Accountability's 29th annual DC Days will take place from May 21-24, 2017. We expect more than 60 activists, from newcomers to experienced hands, to participate in 80+ meetings with congressional and executive branch offices.
In addition to key Senate and House offices that ANA members, as constituents, can uniquely access, we will also meet with key Armed Services and Appropriations Committees as well as the Government Accountability Office and Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board. Executive branch meetings will likely include the Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agence, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Office of Management and Budget, often with their senior leadership.
This year, the new Congress and new Administration especially needs to hear from many of us as we seek a nuclear-free future that safeguards our communities and our environment.

Funding is available for youth scholarships to cover partial costs of registration, transportation and DC housing. Please contact your local ANA member group to apply.
On May 23, 2017, the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability will host an awards reception to honor individuals for their contributions to ANA's mission and specific goals. The 2017 awardees will be announced closer to the date of the event. In 2016, ANA honored the following individuals:
- Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
- Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA)
- Chuck Montano (whistleblower from Los Alamos National Laboratory)
- Kay Cumbow (activist and organizer against nuclear waste in the Great Lakes region)
- Rick Wayman (Director of Programs at the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation)
