DC Days Anti-Nuclear Lobbying (Monday, April 27)

I'm writing from Washington, DC, where I am participating through WILPF's DISARM committee in the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability's annual "DC Days" lobbying week. Six dozen activists from all over the US (and a couple foreign countries) have come together here to lobby congress and the administration for nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation, genuinely clean energy and more responsible storage and cleanup of sites contaminated with nuclear waste. Yesterday, we had an orientation and a couple workshops, which helped us to get oriented and learn about aspects of the issues we do not usually work with. ANA has prepared some fantastic fact sheets that will be delivered either during scheduled meetings or through the office of every member of congress and to many key departments of the Obama Administration.

Today, we held a press conference, and began meeting with legislators and administration officials. More tomorrow!
