Los Alamos Study Group
The Los Alamos Study Group has provided regional and at times national leadership on nuclear warhead issues for two decades – to a degree that belies our modest resources. We have conducted hundreds of briefings on Capitol Hill, where we enjoy a high degree of access, and hundreds of regional public meetings. We are strictly nonpartisan, factual in our style and idealistic in our values, focusing on practical outcomes. We have broad technical, legal, and public education experience.
Collectively we have decades of strong academic and work histories in science, engineering, law, education, and community organizing; some of us have been or are now religious leaders, and we are able to draw on a wide range of other experts as needed. We are headquartered in Albuquerque, with the majority of our work in New Mexico where we have a large membership. But we also work extensively in Washington, DC. We have been quoted in thousands of newspaper articles and interviewed on hundreds of radio and TV programs. We have won environmental, civil rights, and freedom of information lawsuits. Early in 2012 we were named one of the U.S.’s top-ten “small green groups” by Counterpunch. Recently, we have been positively profiled in the Santa Fe New Mexican, the Albuquerque Alibi, and by a European TV station (forthcoming).
