"The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of
thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. We shall
require a substantially new way of thinking if mankind is to survive." -
Albert Einstein, 1946

"So long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe." - President
Barack Obama, 2013

The world has about 17,000 nuclear weapons. The U.S. has about 8,000, but
intends to spend more than $200 billion, to develop "enhanced" nuclear
warheads, new missiles, new bombers, new submarines, and new warhead
manufacturing facilities. We disagree-- do you?  Sign the petition!

of peace and justice organizations and community peace groups in the Greater
