Stories & Successes

"Prophets of Oak Ridge"

Washington Post

Their goal was to awaken the conscience of the nation.

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."
