Who We Are
Since 1989, the Los Alamos Study Group
communityour staff and board, volunteers, interns, and supportershas
consistently provided leadership on nuclear disarmament and related
issues in New Mexico. Not infrequently, we also have provided leadership
nationally as well. Our work includes research and scholarship (central
to all we do), education of decisionmakers, providing an information
clearinghouse for journalists, organizing, litigating, and advertising.
We place particular emphasis on the education and training of young
activists and scholars.
Our careful, reasoned approach has gained
us many friends, and built bridges even with people in the nuclear
labs and plants. Since September 11, 2001, our work has increasingly
placed nuclear weapons in the context of aggression abroad and the
militarization of our society at home.
The Study Group is based in Albuquerque,
New Mexico. Our board of directors includes both New Mexico and
national members, and the work of our staff is supplemented by the
contributions of interns and volunteers. We are supported largely
by individual donations. We welcome your questions, participation,

nation must undergo a radical revolution
of values...A nation that continues year after year
to spend more money on military defense than on
programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death." – Martin Luther King, Jr.
