Center for Arms Control

About Us


The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation is a national non-partisan, non-profit dedicated to enhancing peace and security through expert policy analysis and thought-provoking research. Since 1980, the Center's expertise on reducing the threats of war and nuclear weapons has been sought by the media and policymakers—supported by the tax-deductible contributions of foundations and individuals.

The Center is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) organization and 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 progressive approach to U.S. national security and foreign policy. The Council’s mission is to increase peace and security and to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons by representing our members in Washington and electing congressional candidates who support our goals. Together, the Council and the Center engage in hard-hitting, fact-based analysis and advocacy for a more livable world. Go to to visit the website of the Council for a Livable World.
