Your generous, year-end support for Tri-Valley CAREs enables programs that change nuclear policy, challenge budget priorities, and assert our human right to air, land and water that is free of nuclear contamination.

Your financial gift really does make a difference at Tri-Valley CAREs. We are mighty, but we are not large or bloated. We keep our overhead low, and your tax-deductible donation goes directly into our programs.

As one of our longtime board members Janis Turner so often put it, “Tri-Valley CAREs offers the biggest [nonnuclear] bang for the buck.” Your support, along with the contributions of others like you, truly makes our work possible.

Working together, we resist – and overcome – dangerous U.S. 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.

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 see our collective efforts succeed. I trust you feel heartened too!

So, I ask you to invest today in the positive change we will create together tomorrow. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount will be deeply appreciated and put to immediate good use!
