Dear friend,

It's past time for Congress to provide compensation for the grievous injustices of atomic testing. Downwinders of US atomic bomb blasts and uranium miners, drillers, and workers involved in 'clean up' after the blasts have suffered for decades but have not been compensated for their medical expenses. 

Tell Congress: Justice for Atomic Blast Downwinders and Uranium Workers

For years, US atomic activities during the Cold War contaminated communities and exposed people, livestock, and food crops to toxic, long-lasting radiation, but only some of those downwinders received health compensation through the 1990 Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA). All downwinders, uranium and cleanup workers also need compensation for their sacrifices.

Congress MUST renew RECA before it expires in July 2022, and expand it to include all victims of US nuclear activities.

Ask your US Representative and Senators to co-sponsor and support H.R.5338/S.2798, the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA)

If your Senator or Representatives have already co-sponsored RECA, tell them "Thank You" and encourage them to pass the bill before the clock runs out. 

Thank you and be well, 

The NIRS Team
