Nuclear Guardianship and Outreach Coordinator
We're currently accepting applications for a part time job with two major areas of focus: The Nuclear Guardianship Project and Community Organizing with Young Adults.
Hourly Wage: $20/hour
Part Time: 20 hours/week
Nuclear Guardianship Project - 10 hours/week
The Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center has a long history of leadership with regard to issues around the Rocky Flats Plant and the U.S. nuclear weapon complex. Currently, the Rocky Flats Nuclear Guardianship project is leading campaigns to Keep Kids Off Rocky Flats, to prevent the Jefferson Parkway, to reduce the U.S. nuclear weapon budget, and to halt further nuclear bomb production at SRS in South Carolina and LANL in New Mexico. The overall purpose of this project is to create a culture of Nuclear Guardianship both locally and nationally.
Community Organizing with Young Adults - 10 hours/week
Young adults are facing unprecedented challenges: job losses, inability to pay rent/mortgage and health costs, and secure food, energy and utilities; interrupted education; and social isolation created by the shutdown precipitated by COVID-19. The goal for this position is to organize primarily among students and adults up to age of 35. The outreach would be tied into the collectives and other efforts of the RMPJC. For example, economic hardship requires cuts in military spending and redirection of these funds to job creation and social programs.
