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, founded in 1980, 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.
