Senate approves treaty 71-26
On December 22nd, 2010 the U.S. Senate ratified this treaty reducing U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals. This is the first major international agreement to be ratified since the end of the Cold War, in large part thanks to the work of our member groups, and makes important next steps possible.

You didn't see this coming: Top Republicans, Democrats, military commanders and diplomats now agree we can and should make a world free from nuclear weapons. Of course, three-quarters of Americans agree. Can you help make it a reality?
