PROJECT FOR NUCLEAR AWARENESS INC

Our Nuclear Budget Campaign seeks to realign our taxes with our priorities by placing human needs over the bloated nuclear budget. We are creating grassroots lobbying forces in all fifty states in 2015 to put the pressure on our policy makers to realign our taxes with our priorities. We are creating accessible material comparing each states's contribution to the bloated nuclear to the costs of basic needs in education, infrastructure, and food security. We are conducting training in how to lobby policy makers on this issue and establish meetings with policy makers to make their voices heard. Union leaders, anti-hunger activists, educators and others working to help meet basic human needs should not be told that there is no money for job creation, infrastructure, food and education programs while the nuclear weapons industry feeds its insatiable appetite maintaining and upgrading devastatingly deadly weapons that would cause a global humanitarian crisis if ever used. It is a senseless industry that must be stopped.
