Action 1: Stay informed

Disarmament issues provide opportunities for organizing and outreach, but as ever the first step is to become informed. Going online to find reputable sources is a good starting point. There are many useful websites where you can read the latest information on nuclear weapons, small arms and light weapons. Most of these sites have breaking news stories, regional reports, fact sheets, in-depth studies, timelines, calendars of events, and many additional links to facilitate networking and further study.
