The William J. Perry Project was created by
fmr Secretary of Defense Perry to engage and educate the public
on the dangers on nuclear weapons in the 21st century.

Our mission is to stimulate an informed and broadly inclusive public conversation about the role of nuclear weapons in today's world and to work toward
a world in which nuclear weapons are never used again.

THE NUCLEAR THREAT INITIATIVE and independently funded by private contributions

The Perry Project has worked closely with young people to learn how best to convey our urgent message to them and their peers. We have also teamed up with experts in the field to create dynamic content to spread awareness about the modern threat of nuclear weapons and actions to mitigate that threat.


In 2014, Dr. Perry taught a Stanford course titled "Living at the Nuclear Brink: Yesterday and Today." He was joined by a distinguished array of scholars and experts from government and the private sector who shared our conviction about the critical dangers from nuclear weapons today. The Perry Project will be offering this class as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) 
free and available to the public starting October 1 2016.
