In this article, we utilize data from a representative sample of Massachusetts adults to assess the extent of citizen activism on nuclear issues and to identify some of the factors that predict this activism. Nuclear activists were generally those individuals who had high levels of political interest, strong feelings of political efficacy, the belief that activism against nuclear war would reduce its likelihood, and, most importantly, who had already been active on other political issues.
