Support CCNS on Giving Tuesday NM – Thank you!
Dear Friends of CCNS,
Your support of CCNS will allow us to:
- Bring light to the harm done to the Trinity Downwinders. Work with the Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium to finalize the Health Impact Assessment for the Downwinders of the first atomic bomb test at the Trinity Site in south central New Mexico on July 16, 1945; and
Push for congressional passage of amendments to the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) that would include the Trinity Downwinders, as well as the Post-71 Uranium Miners;
- Protect surface and ground water from LANL pollutants. Continue to take the lead with the Communities for Clean Water to challenge four ground water discharge permits for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), issued by the New Mexico Environment Department and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, that allow for the discharge of thousands of gallons per day into the canyons that flow to the Rio Grande and seep into the regional drinking water aquifer; and
- Bring light to LANL nuclear weapons work. Work with the Interested Parties (Tewa Women United, Peace Action, Nuclear Watch New Mexico, and others) to push for reinstatement of the semi-annual public meetings for the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement (CMRR); and
Oppose expansion of the amount of plutonium allowed in the CMRR Radiological Laboratory Utility and Office Building (RLUOB) from 8.4 grams to over 450 grams.
We will continue to keep you informed through the CCNS Media Network with the CCNS News Update, which is posted on Fridays to our website at http://www.nuclearactive.org, Facebook and Twitter and emailed out to our extensive list – which we never share.
