Supported by Council for a Livable World
The Council for a Livable World, founded in 1962 by long-time socialist activist and alleged Soviet agent, Leo Szilard, is a non-profit advocacy organization that seeks to "reduce the danger of nuclear weapons and increase national security", primarily through supporting progressive, congressional candidates who support their policies. The Council supported Mark Pryor in his successful Senate run as candidate for Arkansas.

In March 2009 legislation was expected to be launched to open the door to expanded agricultural exports from the US to Cuba.
