Bringing the Worker Community Together
Cold War Patriots (CWP) is a community resource organization for nuclear weapons and uranium workers who served this nation from the Manhattan Project through the Cold War, and up to the present day. Many of these workers became ill due to their exposure to radioactive and toxic substances.
Cold War Patriots acts as the leading voice for this community of workers by lobbying Congress to protect and strengthen workers’ access to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) health benefits. Cold War Patriots members and their families receive information and resources to help them navigate the government health programs. CWP connects workers and their family members to the larger community of nuclear and uranium workers nationwide, and recognizes their important contributions to America’s national security efforts.
Cold War Patriots was founded by Professional Case Management in 2008 by bringing together former workers and experts from across the country. Cold War Patriots has an advisory committee comprised of former nuclear weapons and uranium workers and their families, worker advocates and medical professionals.
Membership in Cold War Patriots is free.
