GLOBAL ZERO ACTION CORPS
“Global Zero is grassroots organizing at its finest.” -UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
At Global Zero, we’re powered by the creativity and passion of young people who understand that nuclear weapons have no place in the 21st century. We face a new administration that jeopardizes decades of progress by increasing nuclear weapons spending and volatile, bombastic rhetoric that brings the world to the brink of nuclear war. When global leaders such as Donald Trump are able to trigger nuclear war with the push of a button, the need for change is greater than ever. Action Corps leaders are at the forefront of this fight: spearheading the campaign in their city or campus, directing outreach in their communities, and leading as the face of a vision for a world without nukes.
Action Corps is a year-long organizing program designed to train and empower leaders across the country to tackle one of the biggest threats of our generation. Whether you’re new to the fight or a seasoned activist, we’ll provide the hands-on training, in-depth resources you’ll need to make a difference -- and have fun while you’re at it!
Over the course of the year, you’ll work with Global Zero on creative and impactful campaigns to eliminate nukes. You will have insider access to cutting-edge international policy, work with local and national media, lobby elected officials, learn real leadership and campaign skills, and use all of this to build and lead your very own Global Zero chapter to resist President Trump’s reckless nuclear agenda. Action Corps leaders this year will be working to pressure their campuses and city councils to pass resolutions in opposition to President Trump’s march toward nuclear war, while attending our organizing trainings and helping to recruit for larger national actions.
Action Corps is not your average volunteer role. By the end of this program you will have the skills you need to effectively organize your peers, mobilize them to action, lobby decision-makers, work with the media, and more. Action Corps leaders typically dedicate 3-5 hours a week to the program.
Ready for the challenge? Here’s your chance to become a leader in the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons.
