You can help radiation survivors!

Above-ground nuclear test ca 1950s

Hope exists for those exposed to fallout and other radiation survivors who were ignored. For nearly two decades, Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium (TBDC) has pushed to amend The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) to include Trinity downwinders. The U.S. Senate as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has not only added Trinity downwinders, but others in seven additional states and uranium workers employed post 1971. The Senate and the House NDAAs will now go through the reconciliation process. The House bill needs to have the RECA amendments included. Thank your Senator and please contact your U.S. Representative using the web comment form provided by Union of Concerned Scientists. Ask them to support adding the RECA amendments to the NDAA to mirror what was passed in the Senate with no changes.
