This ain't your grandma’s anti-nuke campaign.

By combining media, online and grassroots initiatives with cutting-edge policy development and direct dialogue with governments, Global Zero is working to achieve the next critical steps to a world without nuclear weapons. From heads of state to high school students, we’re working at all levels to end the nuclear threat.
Since 2008, we've built a powerful international movement to rid the world of nuclear weapons once and for all. But to overcome the challenges ahead, we need to grow our team of talented, passionate movement-builders.
Changing the world takes all kinds of folks: organizers, writers, graphic designers, social media mavens, project managers, administrative junkies and fundraisers – and then some. If you're an entrepreneurial, creative thinker who's looking to make a global impact, send us your resume and letter of interest, and 2-page writing sample to work@globalzero.org.
We can’t wait to hear from you!

Right now we're looking for:
