Council for a Livable World (CLW)

The Council for a Livable World was founded in 1962 by eminent nuclear physicist Leo Szilard and other scientists who did pioneering work on atomic weapons. The goal of these men and women, who knew firsthand the nature of nuclear weapons, was to warn the public and the U.S. Congress of the threat of nuclear war and lead the way to rational arms control and nuclear disarmament. The Council provides senators and members of Congress with sophisticated technical and scientific information that helps them make intelligent decisions about weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, nuclear nonproliferation, and other national security issues.

Our foundation has supported the Council's work to promote a responsible U.S. policy on Iran by engaging policy makers, opinion leaders and activists with careful message framing that can resonate in Congressional debates, candidate speeches and media coverage. Community organizing and mobilization in targeted areas reinforce these messages.
