Learn cutting edge campaigning strategies while helping to prevent nuclear war.

Where & When: BombSquad Ambassadors organize wherever they live in their own state, town or campus! To kick off 2020, BombSquad Ambassadors will join us in Washington D.C. November 2-3, 2019 for our national training conference, SquadLab. Lodging and meals are provided, and travel scholarships are available. Apply by 10/13!
What do BombSquad Ambassadors do?
We’re looking for volunteers who are ready to:
- Build connections across their communities: Ambassadors work with other grassroots organizations and student groups on actions 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, ambassadors get in-depth training so they can 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 activists 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 ambassadors will build on that work to demand politicians who oppose nuclear war.
- Commit to 1-2 hours of work per week: Ambassadors aren’t just committing to continuing to work with us – they’re making a commitment to their community. As a BombSquad ambassador, you agree to continue working on the causes that inspire you and encourage others around you to act on the threat of nuclear war when opportunities arise.
To make sure Ambassadors are as successful as possible, we kick the year off with our SquadLab training in DC. You’ll work with leaders from across movements to learn and hone your organizing skills and connect with other ambassadors from across the country, expanding your network of fellow organizers. This year SquadLab takes place the weekend of November 2nd in Washington, DC.

It’s clear: we cannot trust our political leaders to prevent nuclear war. Whether he’s tweeting threats of nuking hurricanes 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 an Ambassador in the movement to renew our commitment to a nuclear weapon-free world with justice, peace, and security.
