The Arms Control Association is a United States-based nonpartisan membership organization founded in 1971, with the self-stated mission of "promoting public understanding of and support for effective arms control policies."[1]

The group publishes the monthly magazine Arms Control Today.[2] It contains topical news updates as well as extended, footnoted articles.


Through its online content, print materials, and events, the Arms Control Association provides policymakers, media, and the interested public with information, analysis and commentary on arms control proposals, negotiations and agreements, and related national security issues.[1]
