The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation seeks to reduce nuclear weapons arsenals, halt the spread of nuclear weapons, and minimize the risk of war by educating the public and policy makers.

The Center is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) organization. Its affiliated 501(c)(4) organization is the Council for a Livable World, founded in 1962 by Leo Szilard. For more than 50 years, the Council for a Livable World has been advocating for a more principled approach to U.S. national security and foreign policy.

The Center engages in hard-hitting, fact-based analysis to educate the public.
