EDITOR,

Tri-Valley CAREs was in Washington!

Marylia Kelley, Vecky Elliott, Inga Olson and Barbara Dyskant represented Tri-Valley CAREs in Washington, D.C., the week of May 20. Our team was there for the national Alliance for Nuclear Accountability’s 31st annual “DC Days.” They were joined in the nation’s capital by 65 activists that are directly affected by U.S. nuclear weapons sites. Together, they held more than 90 scheduled meetings with Congress and administration officials.

They focused on decision makers with authority over weapons policy and nuclear pollution as both issues have grave consequences for our members who live near the Livermore Lab main site and its Site 300 high explosives testing range in Tracy.
