As a community resource and advocacy membership organization, Cold War Patriots (CWP) helps nuclear weapons and uranium workers and their families get the recognition, monetary compensation and health care they have earned.
Since 1942, the U.S. government estimates that more than 1,000,000 Americans have worked to create and maintain our nation’s nuclear deterrent. In the process, many people became sick because they had exposure to radiation or toxic substances. CWP offers personal assistance for workers and survivors, whether or not you are sick, to navigate complex government programs to file for cash compensation and health benefits.
Our experts help nuclear weapons and uranium workers and their families every day by answering questions, providing resources and connecting them to people with similar circumstances. We also help workers get in touch with the information and resources they need to navigate the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).
