We can work together to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons.

Nuclear weapons pose an existential threat to the survival of humanity. Together, we can insist on diplomacy and disarmament — not more militarism. 

Stopping the Cycle of Violence in the Middle East: A Teach-in for Action | Nov 29, 8:30 EST / 5:30 PST

In the face of Israel’s U.S.-supported genocidal attacks in Gaza, resulting in over 10,000 deaths so far, including thousands of children, the threat of a wider regional conflict is undeniable. These attacks coincide with U.S.-Saudi “security” negotiations, potentially involving military support, with the hope of normalizing Saudi-Israel relations.

What’s most alarming is Saudi Arabia’s request for uranium enrichment—a grave concern given its openness to seeking nuclear weapons if Iran pursues them.

The impact made by Daniel Ellsberg Week, April 24-30, 2023.

The efforts of many of you around the United States to mark Daniel Ellsberg Week generated city proclamations, articles, op-eds, videos, and a puncture or two in the bubble of media groupthink that passes for journalism.


Seeking “to honor peacemaking and whistleblowing,” the cities of Albuquerque, NM, and San Francisco and Berkeley, CA, issued proclamations designating April 24-30 as Daniel Ellsberg Week to honor the renowned Pentagon Papers whistleblower. Additionally, The Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence presented Ellsberg with their annual award.

On February 24, 2023, Defuse Nuclear War held events all over the United States demanding diplomacy in place of military escalation in Ukraine.

Check out coverage of our events: ABC and NBC affiliates in Madison, Wisconsin; ABC and NBC affiliates and The Missourian in Columbia, Missouri; and Boston 25 in Boston, Massachusetts.


Now is a good time to press our case. Click here to email Congress and the White House to demand restraint, diplomacy, and negotiations.

October 16, 2022, Defuse Nuclear War marked 60 years since the start of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Right now is the closest the world has been to a nuclear war since then. 

Very few members of the House and Senate have risen to the occasion by speaking out and working for measures to de-escalate tensions between nuclear powers. Nor have many of them devoted serious effort to reviving negotiations for nuclear-weapons treaties and disarmament measures. 


That’s why it’s so important that people across the country demand that their elected leaders take a stand and work to reduce the risk of nuclear war.
