 Dear Senator Tillis,

 What can you do to help? 

 Nuclear weapons are the most destructive, inhumane and indiscriminate weapons ever created. 

Both in the scale of the devastation they cause, and in their uniquely persistent, spreading, genetically damaging radioactive fallout, they are unlike any other weapons. 

A single nuclear bomb detonated over a large city could kill millions of people. 

The use of tens or hundreds of nuclear bombs would disrupt the global climate, causing widespread famine.

Thanks for trying,
