Talk to Iran

Negotiations continue over Iran's nuclear program. As the next round of talks begins, Congress must give diplomats space and flexibility—instead of imposing new sanctions. Diplomacy is the best way to prevent Iran from getting the nuclear bomb.

Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

With the end of the Cold War, many dared hope that the scourge of nuclear weapons would be ended once and for all. Yet, today, more than two decades later, the drive to build nuclear weapons by some governments continues, energized in no small part by the policies of the U.S. government.

FCNL, Arms Control Community calls on the White House to reduce spending on nuclear weapons

We write to express our concern that current plans for maintaining and upgrading the U.S. nuclear arsenal over the next decade and beyond exceed reasonable deterrence requirements as set out by the President in June 2013 and will deplete resources from higher priorities.

FCNL Statement of Legislative Policy

"We urge the elimination of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

Nations must move toward comprehensive disarmament. We advocate that the United States take unilateral steps toward disarmament, believing that other nations will respond affirmatively to this example. The risks of disarmament are far smaller than the risks involved in the current course of weapons development, proliferation and stockpiling.

We call for our federal government to safely dispose of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and materials in the United States and abroad."
