Our petition to stop new nuclear weapons and thwart a resumption of nuclear yield testing in Nevada was delivered today to key members of Congress and to the White House.


Pictured is Tri-Valley CAREs’ Executive Director Marylia Kelley delivering copies of 10,400 signatures to Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Ranking Member on the Senate Energy & Water Appropriations committee through which the nuclear weapons budget must pass each year.

Marylia Kelley was also able to deliver all of your signatures to Rep. Adam Smith, Ranking Member on the House Armed Services Committee. In meetings later in the week, she will share the petitions with other Democratic and Republican leaders in Congress and the White House Budget Office and other Administration officials.

Thank you to all our members and friends who signed the petition. Your voices are making a difference in our work to constrain the nuclear weapons budget and proactively confront a push to resume nuclear explosive testing, which is being considered as part of the Trump Administration’s “Nuclear Posture Review.”

We thank our partner’s in this effort - Women’s Action for New Directions and Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Together our three groups, and other partners around the country and the world, will continue to work for nuclear disarmament and against escalating nuclear dangers in the era of Trump.
