71 Years Later, Still Living with a Nuclear Threat

On Saturday, August 6, we mark 71 years since the U.S. detonated the first of two nuclear bombs in Japan. The bombing of Hiroshima and of Nagasaki on August 9 killed 200,000 people, mostly civilians.The threat of nuclear war is still alive today. As this anniversary approaches, please write a letter to the editor urging your members of Congress to take steps to shrink the U.S. arsenal and decrease the chances of another Hiroshima.

Solve Problems and Change Policy

Meeting with Congress

Congressional staffers agree that lobbying in person is the most effective way to influence your member of Congress, whether at home or in DC.

Reach Out to Your Community

Numbers make a difference, and legislators will be more inclined to vote your way if they feel there is a groundswell of support behind your position. You can create that wave through community education.

Speak through the Media

Local papers are major resources for congressional offices working to stay in touch with their districts. Naming your member of Congress in a local paper almost guarantees that they will read your position.
