Petition to our New York State, county, and local municipal elected officials: Step Back from the Brink of Nuclear War
According to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the world is closer to a nuclear war than we have been in decades. Nearly $70 billion of US tax dollars is spent annually to build and maintain nuclear weapons while $1.7 trillion is proposed to be spent over the next 30 years to rebuild the entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons – robbing our country and communities of precious resources and taxpayer dollars needed to solve so many urgent human security problems, including responding to the global pandemic, correcting racial and economic injustice, and addressing climate change.

We the undersigned call on our elected officials to join other elected officials across the country to sign onto an open letter urging President Biden and Congress to pursue policies summarized in a national campaign to step “Back from the Brink” of nuclear war. The principles of this campaign are for the U.S. to:

1) Renounce the option of using nuclear weapons first
2) End the sole unchecked authority of any president to launch a nuclear attack
3) Take U.S. nuclear weapons off “hair trigger” alert
4) Cancel the U.S. plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons
5) Actively pursue a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals.

The open letter and the Back from the Brink campaign are being organized nationally by the Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR). This letter can be found at
