With the support of the American Physical Society, the Physicists Coalition for Nuclear Threat Reduction has been launched. Our goal is to reach out to physicists in the United States and mobilize those interested in engaging on the nuclear threat and opportunities for its reduction. The physics community can be a powerful voice to inform Congress and other key stakeholders in policymaking, including the public.
To build a national network of physicists willing to be informed advocates on this issue, we are sending experts in nuclear arms control issues to physics institutions across the country to deliver colloquia, recruit physicists to the coalition and foster local and national advocacy. Advocacy takes many forms: Educating Congressional representatives at home and in Washington, educating state legislators, writing articles for the public, coordinating messaging with local action groups and national NGOs active in nuclear arms issues, and more.
