Who We Are
We were founded in 1975 in response to the government's plan to dump high-level nuclear waste in Nevada. We first gained national attention in the early 80's for our successful efforts to stop the deployment of the MX-Missile. In the years since then, we have taken on a range of local and national military, nuclear, and environmental issues as they affect our region. Today we remain one of Nevada's few sources of independent, critical and comprehensive information about problems vital to Nevada and its residents.
