Join Beyond the Bomb

 

Beyond the Bomb is a people-powered campaign working to free our planet from nuclear violence.

Join their team of student and youth activists to build power every day on the local, state, and national levels to prevent nuclear war and put an end to the exploitative and morally bankrupt system that support these horrific weapons.

We have worked with many students to receive course-credits for their internships with WANW and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility. Contact us to see if we have internship and volunteer opportunities available. 

Students are also more than welcome to join our monthly coalition meetings.
