"We began as an alliance of affected peoples, organizers, health workers, and scientists who wanted to take on a military complex that was poisoning communities, wasting billions of our money, and putting the world at risk. ANA supports our over 30 member organizations and groups who are working throughout the country to empower citizens to take action and to protest an opaque and mismanaged nuclear complex....We work to find solutions that can achieve a vision of a modern society that runs off renewable energy sources, has verifiably dismantled the world's nuclear arsenal, and has responsibly disposed of our nuclear waste."

The Hanford Advisory Board is a non-partisan and broadly representative body consisting of a balanced mix of the diverse interests that are affected by Hanford cleanup issues. As set forth in its charter, the primary mission of the Board is to provide informed recommendations and advice to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) on selected major policy issues related to the cleanup of the Hanford site.  Heart of America Northwest is one of five regional public interest groups on the Board. We have been "issue managers and lead in developing much of the Board's advice on cleanup budgets, risks and objecting to cleanup delays.

"Hanford's Dirty secrets":

Susannah Frame, investigative reporter for KING TV (NBC affiliate Seattle Channel 5), has been covering the cover-up of the leaks from High-Level Nuclear Waste Tank AY-102 since 2011. Her coverage includes research from Heart of America Northwest and our pressing Washington State to enforce the federal and state hazardous waste laws which are supposed to require that leaking tanks are promptly emptied and workers are protected from toxic waste chemical vapors which "burp" from the tanks. The series includes heart breaking documentation of the suffering of workers exposed to those tank vapors.
