As members of Congress and the Trump Administration begin to settle in to their new roles, the Nuclear Threat Initiative has a host of resources to offer new arrivals to Capitol Hill, students beginning the winter semester, or concerned citizens interested in knowing more about nuclear weapons issues.
NTI believes that public education is a critical part of our work to address the threat of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and disruption. Being aware of the issues and getting to know the facts is a good first step for anyone—in government or out—to engage in discussions, to bring visibility to this issue, and to make positive change for a safer world.
Below are a series of links to tutorials, films and materials developed by the Nuclear Threat Initiative and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
These will answer your key questions about nuclear materials, how they are
secured, and how they could be delivered and tested.
