Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are two main problems that the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation works to address. The first is the ongoing threat posed by the nine countries that possess nuclear weapons. There are currently approximately 12,000 nuclear weapons in the world. The second is that the pursuit of peace in the nuclear age is not just wishful thinking, but actually a necessity. We actively educate and advocate for peace in Ukraine and elsewhere.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Nuclear disarmament

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation works towards a world free of nuclear weapons in a myriad of ways. We organize events both in our home community of Santa Barbara, CA, and virtually, to educate young people and the general public about the enormous threat of nuclear weapons. We advocate for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at important meetings and conferences at the United Nations and elsewhere and work on strengthening and implementing the treaty. We engage with CA and national lawmakers to advance nuclear disarmament policies in the United States. Finally, we offer both paid and volunteer internships in Santa Barbara, California and in New York City. Our internship program brings together top level students to work on ways to advance nuclear disarmament around the world.

Population(s) Served

Nuclear Age Peace Foundation promotes peace and the necessity for peace in the nuclear age.
We organize events such as the annual Sadako Peace Day in our local community of Santa Barbara, recognize distinguished peace leaders at our annual event Evening for Peace, and hold an annual poetry contest (deadline July 1). The contest is open to people of all ages from around the world. Since the onset of the Ukraine War, we have held a series of events focused on trying to understand the conflict and its nuclear dimensions and also advancing the idea of necessity for peace and peaceful negotiations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to stop the "modernization" of nuclear arsenals in the United States and other nuclear-armed nations. We work to promote peaceful resolutions to potentially catastrophic conflicts, such as the one between the United States and North Korea. We collaborate with partners around the world to promote the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and ensure its full implementation.

Our ultimate goal is to achieve a negotiated agreement for the phased, verifiable, irreversible and transparent elimination of nuclear weapons at the earliest possible time.

Attend meetings at the United Nations, work with diplomats from countries that are party to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, organize events to educate and advocate for the TPNW, and lobby leadership of countries that have yet to join the treaty.

Send out periodic action alerts to our email list enabling them to write and/or call their elected officials about key nuclear-related issues. Travel to Washington, DC and state capitals to directly lobby elected officials. Identify and collaborate with senators and representatives who are willing to address nuclear weapons issues. Create briefing materials for the public, Congress, and the United Nations.

NAPF's efforts for the abolition of nuclear weapons has a 40 year history and experience in effective education and advocacy work. The Founding President, David Krieger, and the current President, Ivana Hughes, are both recognized as global leaders in the movement. Our active and engaged membership of 50,000 people continues to grow and speak out in public and to their elected officials.

In 2017, NAPF was an active participant at the United Nations in the negotiations for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. With our input, the treaty was adopted by 122 nations and is currently in the process of gathering signatories. In late 2017, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, of which NAPF is a Partner Organization, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for our efforts in achieving this groundbreaking treaty. The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons entered into force in 2021 and has held a First Meeting of States Parties, which we attended and participated in. We are currently preparing for the Second Meeting of States Parties and working on strengthening the treaty by getting more countries to join it and implementation of its provisions, particularly on humanitarian consequences of nuclear use and testing.
