Our national training conference, SquadLab, took place in Washington, D.C. November 2-3, 2019.

BombSquad Ambassadors – who organize wherever they live in their own state, town or campus – learned cutting edge campaigning strategies while helping to prevent nuclear war at this year’s SquadLab conference. The BombSquad is leading a movement demanding our politicians bring us back from the brink of nuclear war. They’ve been working with leaders from across movements to learn and hone their organizing skills and connecting with other ambassadors from across the country.
