New to Capitol Hill or the White House? Taking a Class on Global Security? Get Up-To-Speed on Nuclear Issues with NTI’s Resources

Save to My Resources

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
