Feeling Energized? 

The inauguration and women’s marches energized people from
around the world, and groups are galvanizing on a host of issues, both domestic
and international.

When it comes to the policies and issues around global and
nuclear security, however, the lines are often less clearly drawn – and it can
be hard for citizens to know how to make themselves heard.

A good first step is to learn more, and NTI has the
resources to help.

working toward a world without nuclear weapons and the steps to get there, you
need to understand the basics. NTI’s tutorials are used around the world by
people new to the field—including students, young professionals and media—or
serve as a refresher course for experienced professionals. They can be used on
the job, in the classroom, or on the road to get oriented.
