Americans for a Safe Future (ASF) is the leading political force in a statewide coalition of groups working to stop the construction of a radioactive waste dump in Ward Valley, CA. The proposed waste dump site is only 18 miles from the Colorado River, Southern California’s primary source of drinking water.

ASF is focused on pioneering a more responsible radioactive waste storage policy for the country. Speaking for thousands, ASF is the voice that reaches elected leaders, top officials in government agencies, and those shaping public policy. ASF is succeeding in preventing shallow land burial of radioactive waste at Ward Valley and in reshaping the entire nation’s policy on nuclear power and waste storage.
