Beyond Nuclear International

We created Beyond Nuclear International in order to put the human face on our issue, and to tell the stories of the anti-nuclear struggle in a different way, with a focus on the humanitarian impacts of nuclear power and nuclear weapons. Through this more creative, visual and personalized approach, BNI aims to engage new audiences who care about global warming, animals, our environment, peace and the future of our planet, and to bring the world’s anti-nuclear movement together. beyondnuclearinternational.org
