Nuclear disarmament

Nuclear disarmament

Since the immediate aftermath of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) has played a key role in the movement to abolish nuclear weapons worldwide.

The double standard in which nations possess nuclear weapons and threaten attacks while others are forbidden weapons no longer works. It promotes proliferation and threatens the safety of all people, while siphoning resources that could be spent to improve the health, well-being, and economic security of communities around the world. 

Eliminating nuclear arsenals is critical to moving our society away from militarism and toward shared security. Here are some resources to help people learn more about the issue and join the global call for nuclear disarmament.
