Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to create a more healthy, just, and peaceful world. Throughout its history, PSR has provided a strong health-focused voice against the development and use of nuclear weapons. Our other major programmatic focus is climate change—another catastrophic disaster that threatens human health and survival. PSR is a co-founder and U.S. affiliate of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, and as the U.S. affiliate of this global network, PSR shared in the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize. PSR is also a partner organization in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017. PSR has a national office in Washington, D.C. with chapters across the United States.
PSR's Environment and Health program currently focuses on: supporting a transition to 100% clean renewable energy; fighting fracking and its related infrastructure which severely harms human health, including "forever chemicals" (PFAS) and liquified natural gas (LNG); energy optimization and building electrification and the related harms of cooking with gas in the home; and providing leadership on climate and promoting solutions.
