Meet the Candidates – Senator Ed Markey (D-MA)
Wednesday, August 5th 2020, Peace Action kicked off our new series of “Meet the Candidates” webinars with Senator Ed Markey (D-MA). Sen. Markey has provided steadfast leadership on issues of peace and justice and has been among our strongest allies in Congress. A long-time advocate for nuclear arms control and nonproliferation, he has stepped up to introduce countless pieces of legislation over the years to change the dangerous nuclear policies of the U.S. and cut funding from an unnecessary new arms race — including his Smarter Approaches to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) Act, which seeks to make substantial cuts to the bloated nuclear weapons upgrade program set to cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion. We’re also rather fond of it as it’s named after our founding organization Committee for a SANE Nuclear Policy. Senator Markey is in a tight primary election race to retain his seat.
