There are a wide variety of other organizations and resources working to educate the public on issues related to nuclear power and proliferation both here in Washington State and around the globe. We value the mission and of goals of these organizations and encourage you to visit them to learn more about the issues and the work being done to engage them.

The Columbia River Exhibition of History, Science, and Technology (CREHST) is a museum and science center created to tell the dynamic story of the Columbia Basin and surrounding region.

This facility features a variety of two- and three-dimensional exhibits and displays. Visitors will be entertained with interactive, hands-on displays and activities. Enjoy a fascinating journey through the unique Columbia Basin region.

Columbia Riverkeeper's mission is to restore and protect the water quality of the Columbia River and all life connected to it, from the headwaters to the Pacific Ocean.

http://www.downwinders.org
To expose the plight of downwind residents whose fallout exposures have caused cancers, leukemia, and other illnesses, and to obtain justice for their injuries. To fight for an immediate end to all nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site and elsewhere.

The primary aim of Hanford Challenge is social change and transformation, influencing public policy, and changing cultural norms and mindsets in order to improve the cleanup activities at Hanford. We hold Hanford accountable, protect whistleblowers, promote discovery of common ground among traditional opponents on the issue of Hanford, generate creative resolutions and foster collaborative opportunities for improvement. The desired outcome is a site that performs its cleanup obligations in a transparent, efficient, and creative manner, at a reasonable cost to the taxpayer, and in a fashion that protects worker and public health and safety, the environment, and future generations.

The project seeks to provide educational information and materials about potential health risks to individuals who may have been exposed as young children to past releases of radioactive iodine (I-131) between 1944 and 1951 from the Hanford Nuclear reservation, which is in south central Washington state. The project's goal is to assist concerned individuals and their health care providers in making informed health care choices concerning these exposures.

The Network is a collaboration of the health agencies of Washington, Oregon and Idaho, along with nine Indian Nations. The Network was created to provide information on the known and potential health effects of the radioactive releases from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, located in south central Washington state, from 1944 to 1972. For more than 40 years, Hanford released radioactive materials into the environment, while producing plutonium for America's nuclear arsenal.
