From the desk of Marylia Kelley…
Working together, we resist – and overcome – dangerous US nuclear weapons programs. With your partnership, we are making progress toward a more peaceful, just and nuclear-free world. And, on January 22, 2022 we invite you to celebrate with us the first anniversary of the entry into force of the international Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
Together we watchdog the Livermore Lab, one of two locations that designs every nuclear warhead and bomb in the U.S. stockpile. We are changing operations at the Lab. We have stopped open-air blasts to test new warhead designs – and we have prevented these larger tests since the Lab announced its plan to conduct them in 2017.
Together we safeguard worker and community health and the environment. We assist Livermore Lab workers made ill by on the job exposures to get compensation. We scrutinize the Lab’s hazardous waste permits to increase safety. We involve the public in Superfund cleanup decisions to ensure that contaminated land and water are cleaned up to the communities’ standards, not the polluters.
I hope that you feel pride in these successes. Your support has enabled them. It’s a true team effort at Tri-Valley CAREs.
And, together, we are winning. Not every single struggle to be sure (at least not yet), but we are winning so, so many of them. It gives me great hope to watch our collective efforts succeed. I trust you feel heartened too!
