Founded in 1987 under the name Military Production Network, the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) is a network of over 30 local, regional and national groups representing the concerns of communities in the shadows of the U.S. nuclear weapons sites and radioactive waste dumps. We have effectively worked to open up the operations of the U.S. Department of Energy to help shut down polluting, obsolete and unsafe facilities, and to stop nuclear weapons testing as well as the construction of new bomb production.
ANA has helped to change the way that nuclear issues are framed. Rather than allowing DOE and others to define problems as purely local, ANA has exposed them as part of larger, widespread issues. Groups are now able to link themselves to national campaigns against a corrupt system. Learn more about the Alliance.
Everything starts with a desire for a better world
We have a choice. We can have a world where the expansion of nuclear power, and the continued possession of thousands of warheads by the U.S. and Russia, causes a proliferation of nuclear weapons and material around the planet; With poor waste management systems in place, radioactive contamination spreads, poisoning communities and the environment. Or, by working together, we create a nuclear-free, carbon-free world that fosters the type of international cooperation that can help engender peace. Join us as we work to shape that future.
None of the issues that we work on are easy or have simple solutions. If we are to successfully safeguard the future, we will need your involvement and your leadership.
