HAI Joins the Washington Against Nuclear Weapons Coalition

Oct 30, 2018

At HAI, we know war and conflict have far-reaching impacts on health abroad and at home. As a Washington-based organization, we are committed to helping Washingtonians stay informed on issues that impact their health.  That’s why we are pleased to announce that we have joined the Washington Against Nuclear Weapons (WANW) Coalition led by our friends at Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (WPSR).

WPSR and the WANW Coalition  have been actively working to raise awareness of the continuing threat posed by nuclear weapons, both in Washington State and around the world. Because this issue is so important, WPSR wanted to make sure that Washington State voters know where their congressional candidates stand on nuclear issues in the lead up to the 2018 US elections. As part of these efforts, WPSR reached out to all 20 Washington State congressional candidates to ask about their views on peace, military, and especially nuclear weapons. You can find the responses to the survey here.*

In addition to the survey, we encourage you to read and share the following editorial written by Lilly Adams, Security Program Organizer and WANW Coordinator at WPSR.

*Neither WPSR nor HAI endorse or oppose any candidate for public office. This non-partisan survey was sent to all 20 congressional candidates in Washington State and is for informational use.
