Elections

For more than 50 years, the Council for a Livable World has helped to elect 359 members of Congress who are supportive of principled national security and foreign policy positions, including arms control.

Council members and supporters provide more funds to candidates than any other peace and security organization. We raised more than $1.6 million for candidates in 2014. See who we have helped to elect: http://livableworld.org/about/mission/our-legacy-in-congress-who-weve-helped-elect/
