WAND's Work on Nuclear Weapons
Women's Action for New Directions began as Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament in 1982. With the end of the Cold War we expanded our mission to include the federal budget and a redirection of priorities away from the military and toward human needs. Although WAND has broadened its mission, we have never stopped working towards nuclear disarmament.

Read Public Policy Director Kathy Crandall Robinson's op-ed "It's time for a comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty" on The Hill's Congress Blog (4/11/2012).
WAND members and chapters recently worked hard to help ratify the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START). We continue to work for a nuclear weapons free world.
