THE ALLIANCE FOR NUCLEAR ACCOUNTABILITY
Since 1987, the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability has worked to hold the federal government accountable through citizen education, empowerment, and action. Formed by organizations from communities in the shadows of nuclear weapons facilities, ANA includes more than thirty local, regional, and national organizations concerned about the consequences of US nuclear weapons and waste policies. ANA’s leaders are deeply rooted in communities directly affected by these policies, and we bring our experience to bear in addressing issues of government spending; public accountability; nuclear nonproliferation; waste cleanup, treatment and disposition; and the health and safety of workers, the public and the environment.
Through our collective action, we have successfully advocated for shutting down nuclear weapons sites, the establishment of funds for monitoring and technical assistance, and effective oversight of federal agencies responsible for actions across the weapons complex. We have been instrumental in blocking dangerous weapons programs, supporting more responsible management of facilities, advocating for public safety through environmental cleanup of contaminated sites, and pressing for the safe and responsible handling of dangerous nuclear wastes.
For more than 30 years, ANA has been demonstrating that people have the power to make changes in the communities where they live. In order for our network’s vision to succeed, we need you to help us by supporting our Alliance members through donations, or by providing your leadership and support directly by joining the ANA member organization nearest you!
The power is in the people and our over 25 years of advocacy on these issues has only reinforced that belief.
