Women Legislators' Lobby

Reclaiming “Our Authority” Resolution Campaign Toolkit

You have the opportunity right now to be heard and make a difference. With your unique position as a state legislator, we at WiLL believe you are the key to raising awareness of and infusing reason into our country’s nuclear weapons policies. You can help your constituents sleep better at night by showing them through example that when lives are on the line no issue is too elite or too complicated to try to understand and take action on. 

WiLL is here to help you lead on this issue. We've compiled information to help get you on track and feel comfortable taking a stance on this issue. 

One-pager of background information about Nuclear No First Use and why it's a smart policy to support. 

Register for webinar with Representative Ted Lieu, the lead sponsor of the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act currently in the U.S. House of Representatives, to learn more about our nation’s nuclear weapons launch policy and what you can do to restrict the circumstances under which the U.S. launches an unprovoked nuclear attack.
