Proposition One is a grassroots movement for disarmament of nuclear weapons and the conversion of nuclear and other arms industries to provide for human and environmental needs. The concept was proven viable by the victory of DC Initiative 37. The bill has continuously been introduced in Congress since 1994. Now we are asking you to replicate the Voter Initiative Campaign across the entire country. ___________________________________________________________________________________
