The world stands at a critical moment in nuclear security. Last year, President Obama committed his administration to seeking “the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.” Between the negotiation of a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) agreement; a historic, unprecedented White House nuclear security summit; renewed efforts to end nuclear testing worldwide through enactment of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT); and the current Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference, the international community has revitalized the idea of a world free of nuclear war and nuclear terrorism.
I want to thank you for your interest in the work of FAS and let you know how you can help. This summer FAS will take the lead to educate policymakers, the press, and the public on all aspects of the new START agreement, CTBT ratification, and NPT resolutions.
To provide this assessment of our nation’s security, support from our membership is vital. Join FAS today. You can become a member today with a contribution of $50 or more. If you’re already a FAS member, I ask that you please make an additional contribution to FAS of $50 or more.
Your contribution will enable FAS to:
– Brief Congress and administration officials on all facets of the new START, CTBT, and NPT Review Conference resolutions.
– Provide a technical assessment of our nation’s security to policymakers, the press, and the public.
– Bring scientists and policymakers together to develop and implement best security practices for dismantling nuclear weapons and remaining usable nuclear materials.
– Support the FAS Strategic Security Program.
As many of you know, FAS experts have worked since 1945 to reduce the risk of nuclear war. Today, you can become part of the tradition of bringing scientific knowledge to bear on critical security decisions by making a contribution of $50 or more by May 31st.
Again, thank you for strengthening FAS through your continued interest and support.
