Learn cutting edge campaigning strategies while helping to prevent nuclear war.
We need trained volunteer activists to lead a movement demanding our politicians bring us back from the brink of nuclear war. Apply today!
Where & When: Action Corps Leaders organize wherever they live in their own state, town or campus! The program runs annually each year from August to July. To kick off the year, all Action Corps activists will join our national training weekend. This year it will be held August 25-26, 2018 in Washington, DC.
What do Action Corps Leaders do?
We’re looking for volunteers who are ready to:
- Build connections across their communities: Action Corps Leaders (ACLs) work with other grassroots organizations and student groups to put on events that bring their community together towards the common goals of peace and justice.
- Educate & mobilize their peers: Whether it is a teach-in or a Letter to the Editor writing workshop, ACLs keep their community informed, and give them meaningful ways to get involved.
- Make the nuclear threat a key issue in the elections: It was grassroots organizers and ACLs that made the presidential candidates of 2016 acknowledge the threat posed by nuclear weapons, and the danger of having someone willing to use them in the White House. This year’s ACLs will build on that work to elect politicians who oppose nuclear war.
- Commit to 3-5 hours of work per week: ACLs work with our field staff to figure out the most effective way to organize in their community or campus.
To make sure ACLs are as successful as possible, we kick the year off with our Action Lab training in DC. You’ll work with leaders from across movements to learn and hone your organizing skills and connect with other ACLs from across the country, expanding your network of fellow organizers. This year Action Lab takes place the weekend of August 25th in Washington, DC.

This past year has made it clear: we cannot trust our political leaders to prevent nuclear war. Whether he’s tweeting threats of “fire and fury” or seeking to grow the destructive power of our nation’s nuclear arsenal, President Trump’s actions have placed our communities and our world in grave danger. Join us as a leader in the movement to renew our commitment to a nuclear weapon-free world with justice, peace, and security.
