Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium

The Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium (TBDC) was organized in 2005. The mission of the TBDC is to bring attention to the negative health effects suffered by the unknowing, unwilling, uncompensated, innocent victims of the first nuclear blast on earth that took place at the Trinity site in South Central New Mexico. The people of New Mexico are currently exhibiting 4 and 5 generations of cancer illness and death since the bomb was detonated in 1945. Ultimately, the goal is the passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments to bring much-needed healthcare coverage and partial restitution to the People of New Mexico who have sacrificed and suffered the negative health effects of overexposure to radiation.
