About us

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. Our mission is to increase peace and security and to reduce the threat of war and nuclear weapons by representing our members in Washington and electing congressional candidates who support our goals.


Our members can contribute to the Council’s Candidate Fund, a political action committee that raised more than $1.5 million for candidates running in 2014. Since 1962, we’ve helped to elect 359 members of Congress who are supportive of progressive national security and foreign policy positions. Find out more about the Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund.


Our affiliated research and education organization is the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) organization. It 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–and supported by the tax-deductible contributions of foundations and individuals.

Together, the Council and the Center engage in hard-hitting, fact-based analysis and advocacy for a more livable world. Go to or to visit the website for the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
