Where your support goes
Founded in 1961, PSR made its mark by documenting the presence of Strontium-90, a highly radioactive waste product of atmospheric nuclear testing, in children's teeth. This finding led to the Limited Nuclear Test Ban treaty that ended atmospheric nuclear testing.
Won a major victory against nuclear weapons with our work for the successful ratification of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), the first treaty in a generation which significantly lowers the number of strategic arms of the United States and Russia.
