Barack Obama and Scott Brown

President Obama has made disarmament a priority. Among the modest steps his administration has taken is the negotiation of the “New START” treaty with Russia. Massachusetts' new senator, Scott Brown, will play a major role in determining whether or not the treaty is ratified or if the future of arms control and disarmament will be thrown into chaos.

Join us to learn more about how the Obama Administration’s nuclear policies and disarmament agenda affect our lives and relate to its overall foreign policy agenda.
