What would a world without nuclear weapons look like to you? Global Zero’s #FutureFirst fellowship asks you to imagine a future where we center people and the planet above war, stop rampant defense spending from draining our communities, and work together to achieve a world that has moved beyond the bomb.
Over four months you’ll join other bold, intersectional activists to hone your skills as an organizer, become an expert in the ways the nuclear weapons system harms your own community, and develop strategies to eliminate them! Build power in your community by starting a BombSquad hub, holding candidates and elected leaders responsible for their policies, and harnessing the power of grassroots activism to challenge the stronghold these weapons have had over us.
At Global Zero, we believe nuclear weapons directly reflect unjust power structures – from the undemocratic launch process to the billions spent every year, to the aftermath of testing that still impacts the health of indigenous and marginalized communities, nuclear weapons intersect with the issues of progressive activists already care about, and we need you in this fight!
