Int'l Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons
Mission: "ICAN is a global campaign coalition working to mobilize people in all countries to inspire, persuade and pressure their governments to initiate and support negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. The campaign was launched in 2007, with more than 300 partner organizations is now active in more than 80 countries worldwide."
ICAN has posted a Flickr album of annotated photos of the UN Ban Treaty negotiations.
About GZ: "We've spent years building a nonpartisan, international community of influential political, military, business, civic and faith leaders- matched by a powerful global grassroots movement. We're not tilting at windmills. We've got a plan. And it's backed by experts and leading newspapers worldwide. The challenge now is getting world leaders to act on it- and only unified, international public pressure can create the necessary political will to make it happen."
Reaching Critical Will
Very active on nuclear abolition. A project of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
Nuclear Security Project
NSP is the earnest effort of George Schultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger, Sam Nunn. "Reassertion of the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and the practical measures toward achieving that goal would be, and would be perceived to be, a bold initiative consistent with America's moral heritage... The effort could have a profoundly positive impact on the security of future generations."

Online Course From William Perry:
Living at the Nuclear Brink: Yesterday & Today
"Because most people do not understand just how serious these dangers are today, their governments are not taking adequate preventive actions: actions that are readily achievable. And so, we are drifting towards a nuclear catastrophe. This is why I have dedicated the balance of my life to educate the public about these dangers, and this is the reason I have created this course." (sign up here)
Nuclear Weapons- Reports & Analysis
Alliance for Nuclear Accountability
ANA is an alliance of 30+ local watchdogs and national organizations (Nuclear Watch is a member), 'working to empower citizens to take action and to protest an opaque and mismanaged nuclear complex'.
From ANA's 'about us' statement: "Through our collective action, we have shut down nuclear weapons sites that were contaminating local communities, established funds for monitoring and technical assessment, and ensured that federal facilities are subject to state environmental enforcement. We have blocked dangerous nuclear weapons programs, supported more responsible management plans, and worked to decommission hazardous nuclear reactors. We know how to win against an often intransigent government and contractors that waste billions of taxpayer dollars through mismanagement and, sometimes, sheer incompetence."
Arms Control Association
Resources: by countries, by subject, reports, threat assessments, fact sheets, issue briefs.
Federation of American Scientists
'The Federation of American Scientists is one of the longest serving non-governmental organizations devoted to reducing nuclear dangers and other threats to national and international security by providing rigorous, nonpartisan, technical analysis and recommendations to policymakers and the public. FAS works on a variety of issues including nuclear weapons, radiological and nuclear terrorism... non-proliferation and counter-proliferation.' Of particular interest: F.A.S. Strategic Security Blog. See also issue briefs, reports, publications.
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Home of the Doomsday Clock and a deep online resource. The Bulletin has been published continuously since 1945, when it was founded by former Manhattan Project physicists after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Bulletin's primary aim is to inform the public about nuclear policy debates while advocating for the international control of nuclear weapons.
