Tell Obama to Declare "No First‑Use" as US Nuclear Weapons Policy

As commander-in-chief, President Obama should declare that America will never use a nuclear weapon first. Use the form below to sign our petition asking him to make this declaration before he leaves office!

With more than four months left in his presidency, he still has time. Threatening to use a nuclear weapon first increases the chance of nuclear war by accident or miscalculation. Declaring "No First-Use" will strengthen our national security and that of the world.

We already have overwhelming conventional military power over any foe or combination of foes. We do not need to use a nuclear weapon, a weapon of mass destruction.

Senator Dianne Feinstein recently said, "The only moral purpose for nuclear weapons is to deter their use by other nuclear powers. To unambiguously state that we will never initiate nuclear war would reinforce an international norm that will help keep us safe and minimize the very real risk that a foreign power might someday misinterpret a benign rocket launch or a non-nuclear military action as a nuclear strike."

Please sign our petition urging President Obama to declare "No First-Use" as the official nuclear weapons policy of the United States.

Dear President Obama,

I urge you to declare that America would never use a nuclear weapon first.

We have overwhelming conventional military superiority over any foe or combination of foes. Threatening to use a nuclear weapon first only increases the chances of nuclear war by accident or miscalculation.

Please lead the world toward a safer future, and reduce the threat posed by nuclear weapons to humanity, and to the survival of our nation.

Sincerely,
