No Nuclear War!

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is working to decrease the chance of a nuclear war. Please tell your Representative and your Senators to cosponsor the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017. Sen. Ed Markey sponsored the Senate legislation, and Rep. Ted Lieu sponsored the House companion bill.

This bill prohibits the President from using the Armed Forces to conduct a first-use nuclear strike unless such strike is conducted pursuant to a congressional declaration of war expressly authorizing such strike.

"First-use nuclear strike" means a nuclear weapons attack against an enemy that is conducted without the President determining that the enemy has first launched a nuclear strike against the United States or a U.S. ally.

We absolutely cannot risk nuclear war. Do all you can to help lower the chance of an accidental or other misuse of these horrific weapons any way you can. Our lives depend on it.
