Mission: A counterweight to the Dept. of Energy nuclear weapons Goliath, and important citizen's perspective on DOE programs and wasted taxpayer dollars.
Programs: To clean up the Labs and reduce environmental and health hazards.
Monitor the cleanup of contamination resulting from the activities of the weapons laboratories in Livermore. Advocate for increases in cleanup efforts when needed.
Challenge the programs that continue to threaten our health and safety.
Inform people of the risks to their community from nuclear weapons programs.
To convert the Labs to socially beneficial, environmentally sound research.
Facilitate conversion of the weapons laboratories in Livermore from nuclear weapons design to missions in environmental restoration technologies, renewable non-polluting energy sources, alternative vehicles and transportation and the design of green manufacturing processes. Such constructive work can secure the quality of life for communities across the nation, including our own.
To end nuclear weapons research, design and testing in the United States.
Confront and expose the nuclear programs which endanger the peace and security of people around the world.
Work to change national security policy, which is still based upon the maintenance of a cred- ible nuclear threat, including the possibility of a first strike.
To abolish nuclear weapons worldwide.
Work for acceptance of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, in the U.S. and internationally.
Work to reduce stockpiles to an absolute minimum, and ultimately zero.
Promote policies to achieve an equitable, successful non-proliferation regime.
To promote forthright communication and democratic decision-making in public policy on nuclear weapons issues, locally, nationally and globally.
Inform, empower and encourage citizen participation in U.S. nuclear policy issues.
Continue partnerships with Russian activists and other allied citizens' groups on issues of conversion, environmental cleanup and disarmament.
Tri-Valley CAREs does an amazing amount of important work on a relatively small budget. I'm a regular donor to Tri-Valley CAREs because I know they'll get results, will use my contributions wisely and do a fantastic job raising community awareness and stopping the nuclear weaponeers
The Bay Area is truly blessed to have the astonishingly intelligent,
qualified, and committed people at Tri-Valley CAREs working hard every day
as advocates for the air, water, land and people of the region, and for
peace in the world. Without the information they provide, the events they
organize and the policy work in which they engage, we would be powerless
against the environmental and health threats posed by having an enormous
nuclear weapons laboratory in our backyard. We all have reason to be
grateful for Tri-Valley CAREs' work.
In my many years of volunteering, I have found Tri-Valley CAREs to be unique, particularly in two qualities. The first is that it accomplishes so much good in the community and the world on such a modest budget. The second is that each year, during the group's strategic planning retreat,goals are prioritiized for the coming months - and THESE GOALS ARE ALWAYS
MET!. I truly have never seen so much done with so little. It is an honor to be involved with this organization.
