PSR Past Presidents build case for cuts in nukes in key states

October 21, 2011

Dr. Ira Helfand and Dr. Jeff Patterson, past PSR Presidents, travelled to Kansas City and Los Angeles respectively to build support for nuclear weapons abolition in the face of the upcoming budget debate in Congress. Both speakers addressed activists, concerned citizens, and students as part of speaker tours that are occurring across the country this Fall. PSR's medical voice on the case for nuclear disarmament is essential as we move to build on the successful ratification of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in late 2010.

Kansas City PSR is currently engaged in strong opposition to the Kansas City Nuclear Weapons Plant. They are seeking, using a ballot referendum, to ensure that Kansas City's funds are not used to secure more capacity to build nuclear weapon components. 

In Los Angeles PSR activists are represented by Super Committee member Rep. Xavier Becerra who will have a powerful voice on trillions of dollars of spending and cuts. We seek to show how money appropriated for our archaic and dangerous nuclear weapons arsenal can help fund essential human needs. 

Over the next month, PSR leaders will speak to audiences in Oregon, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and DC to help build support for meaningful cuts in our bloated nuclear weapons arsenal.
