Legacy in Congress
We are proud to say that for more than 50 years, the Council for a Livable World has helped to elect 359 members of Congress who are supportive of principled national security and foreign policy positions, including arms control.
Council members and supporters provide more funds to candidates than any other peace and security organization. We raised more than $1.6 million for candidates in 2014. See what our elected endorsed candidates have helped to accomplish over the years.
Along with its sister organization, the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, Council for a Livable World has been at the forefront of U.S. arms control and national security policy for nearly half a century.
We work directly with Congress to advocate for sensible national security policies and arms control. Some notable accomplishments include ratification of the New START treat with Russia, and supporting the Iran nuclear negotiations.
