Forget the movies: Nuclear Weapon Development Has Real Victims August 11, 2023

Win Without War

Jasmine Owens, PSR Nuclear Weapons Abolition Associate Director: One thing I wish was better understood about the nuclear abolition movement is that it is a deeply intersectional issue. Nuclear weapons impact all of us, whether we realize it or not. The existence and modernization of the U.S. nuclear arsenal serves to exacerbate the public health crisis in this country, is contributing to climate change and perpetuating environmental racism, is contributing to the militarization of our country that is resulting in the over-policing of our communities, and so much more. In order for us to achieve our goal of nuclear abolition, we must work alongside other movements for social change; we must use our collective people power to demand that our leaders prioritize the people over power and profit. It’s going to take every single one of us to dismantle this system that is so deeply entrenched in our society.
