The Call: Back from the Brink
The danger of nuclear war is real and growing.
We are marching to the brink of a catastrophe that threatens all of humanity. We need to act now.
Back from the Brink: The Call to Prevent Nuclear War is a national grassroots campaign seeking to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy and lead us away from the dangerous path we are on. The Call lays out five common-sense steps that the United States should take to reform its nuclear policy. We are asking individuals and organizations around the country to endorse The Call and build a national movement to get the U.S. government to adopt it as its highest national security priority.
Join the campaign and help build a safer world for our children to inherit.
We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by endorsing Back from the Brink's 5 Points
Back from the Brink's 5 Point Plan
Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first
Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. president to launch a nuclear attack
Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
Cancelling the plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons
Actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals

To: Democratic National Committee and Republican National Com):
Prevent Nuclear War Maryland (PNWMD) is dedicated to preventing nuclear war, which could happen either by miscalculation, misinformation or hostilities between nuclear powers. As such, we urge the DNC and RNC to approve resolutions for these 3 policy goals:
De-escalation of international hostile rhetoric: We support foreign policies designed to reduce tensions between major nuclear powers, specifically between the U.S. and Russia. As nuclear hair-triggered arsenals present an existential threat to continued life on the planet, we urge the DNC and RNC to recognize that any conceivable problems between the U.S. and Russia pale in comparison to a renewed nuclear arms race. We urge the DNC and RNC to state that in the clearest of terms that reducing nuclear tensions is the number one priority in U.S.-Russia relations. Accordingly, we ask that campaign rhetoric which is expected to cause Republicans to try to prove that they are more anti-Russian than Democrats, is counter-productive to nuclear safety.
2. Proportional estimations of election interference: We request the DNC and RNC to pass a resolution recommending to candidates and legislators that they introduce legislation requiring investigations of election interference by any and all foreign and domestic entities, both government and multinational corporations.
3. Show that candidates are not being influenced by oil war contractors and nuclear weapons industry:
We request the DNC and RNC pass a resolution to recommend to all candidates and legislators to refuse to take any donations from military contractors and fossil fuel interests.

"...the fate of the world and the future of the human race, is involved with preventing nuclear war."
