We call on the United States to lead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by:

  • renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first

  • cancelling the plan to replace its entire arsenal with enhanced weapons;
  • actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals
