World BEYOND War is hiring a US Organizer

The U.S. Organizer’s primary role is to enlarge and activate World BEYOND War’s membership base in the United States, building volunteer-run chapters to do educational, activist, and media work on global, national, and locally developed projects. This organizer will work to strengthen the peace/anti-war movement in the United States as a whole by working with and developing affiliate organizations, and by working in collaboration with allies in various coalitions, new and longstanding. Being located in, or near, Washington, D.C., the World BEYOND War U.S. Organizer will be responsible for organizing across the United States – mostly virtually, with occasional travel – but also for enlarging and making more visible the WBW presence in peace/anti-war events in the nation’s capital, and for promoting WBW’s U.S. work to U.S. media outlets. The U.S. Organizer, like the Canada Organizer and the Latin America Organizer, reports directly to the Organizing Director and works in collaboration with all other departments.
