 WRL Field Organizer
 The War Resisters League seeks a strategic, self-directed, and  experienced Field Organizer to help build and develop our work on a  national level. As one of the leading radical voices in the anti-war  movement, our programs challenge military recruitment and war  profiteering, organize nonviolent direct action, and offer  on-the-ground education. Our current projects include the Not Your  Soldier Project, the Stop the Merchants of Death Program, and a number  of local and regional anti-war organizing projects.
 
 The Field Organizer (FO) will be responsible for bolstering and  strengthening the work of the War Resisters League and increasing the  number of people who identify with its radical analysis of violence  and war-making and radical action for revolutionary nonviolence and  peacemaking.
 
 The Field Organizer will be based in our New York City national  office, but will also spend a significant portion of their time on  the  road building the League. The Field Organizer will initiate, organize,  and support WRL local chapters and affiliates, and assist  WRL-identified groups network, organize and act for social and  political change, with the goal of developing community leaders who  will continue to organize with the WRL in the coming years.
 
 Along with other organizing staff, they will serve as a project  representative,  articipating in workshops, trainings, and
 conferences, and act as a conduit to bring information, analysis and

the

 movements for social and political justice. This process will shape
 the direction of WRL’s organizing work, the League’s future mission
 and analysis, as well as help develop a holistic understanding of
what
 our role in the anti-war movement can and should be, on a national,
 regional, and local level.
 
 One of the Field Organizer’s projects will be to revive nonviolent
 direct action training within the League by coordinating “training
for
 trainers” and convening a WRL Nonviolent Direct Action and Training
 Working Group. In addition, they would serve as the staff coordinator
 of the WRL’s Organizing Network and offer organizing and nonviolent
