Kansas City Nuclear Weapons Plant

Ann Suellentrop, MSRN and Alicia Dressman of Kansas City PSR, joining with other prominent KC activist groups like Peace Planters, have challenged the very core of the nuclear weapons complex in the United States - the facilities that make the bombs. After educating the public and reaching out to many KC residents, they gathered more than enough signatures to add a ballot measure that would allow citizens to decide on whether to create a green jobs facility to replace the construction of a nuclear weapons facility. Kansas City Peace Planters, a coalition of local groups including PSR, has created an important site named "Foolish Investment" to educate concerned citizens on what is being done to oppose the nuclear weapons complex in their city.

Now, they are seeking to create a new ballot initiative that will work towards a Kansas City future that is nuclear-free.

This debate is already capturing the attention of local and national media. Please stay tuned for more updates and ways to be involved.
