As nuclear tensions rise globally, we believe it’s important that 2020 candidates take a stand for policies that roll us back from the brink of nuclear war.

We’re asking candidates if they will endorse a No First Use policy if elected – a congressional measure that would ensure the US would never launch a nuclear weapon as a first strike against another nation. As it stands, the President has sole authority over the launch of a nuclear weapon – meaning the President can launch one without approval, whenever.

We have seen the dangers of sole authority, no President should ultimately have the ability to destroy entire communities by initiating nuclear war.

Check out the candidates below! They’ve all committed to passing legislation like No First Use, and putting checks and balances on our nuclear weapons systems!

Note: Beyond the Bomb does not endorse Congressional candidates, however, we thank representatives for committing to passing policies like No First Use!
