Under the Trump administration, we have faced the most serious risk that nuclear weapons might be used, either by accident or design, since the Cold War. President Trump’s policies and rhetoric continue to stun the world and present grave challenges for our core strategic objectives.
Yet despite this uncertainty and fear, there is a ray of hope. The national appetite for confronting nuclear challenges has been growing every day, and the public and media are talking about nuclear weapons with a frequency not seen in decades. A continued spotlight on our issue, paired with the vibrant mass movement rising up around this country, offers us a unique opportunity to confront these new challenges and make a significant and lasting impact.
