About NIRS

 

2013 marks the 35th anniversary of Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS). We were founded to be the national information and networking center for citizens and environmental activists concerned about nuclear power, radioactive waste, radiation and sustainable energy issues.

We still fulfill that core function, but have expanded both programatically and geographically. We initiate large-scale organizing and public education campaigns on specific issues, such as preventing construction of new reactors, radioactive waste transportation, deregulation of radioactive materials, and more. Our international programs and affiliation with WISE (World Information Service on Energy) means that our network spans more than a dozen offices and programs across the globe

NIRS relies on activism and contributions from citizens across the world to support our efforts for a nuclear-free planet and a sustainable energy future. During 2013, NIRS has launched a new three-year capacity-building plan designed to bolster our ability to serve a new global generation of activists, raised on the internet, social networking and ever more mobile and instant means of communication, that has emerged from the rubble of Fukushima. You can read this plan here.

We hope you'll help. Please join our e-mail Alert list and we’ll keep you informed about ways you can make a difference in our energy and climate future.

And please join Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, the Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, The Fray, Bob Weir, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Guster, Ed Begley, Jr., James Cromwell, Graham Nash and other well-known and lesser-known but vital NIRS supporters and contribute financially and/or with your time.
