The Peace Action Phone Campaign is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who’s passionate about political organizing to gain the basic skills and experience needed to pursue a career in non-profit work or political advocacy, as well as opportunities to participate in some of our political work and advancement within Peace Action. While knowledge of our issues and fundraising/outreach experience is preferred, it is not necessary.
As a membership based organization, it is important for our members to be engaged with us, both practically and financially. Our day-to-day calling consists of issue/organizational updates, fundraising and calls to take political actions. We phone consistently throughout the week, offering both daytime and evening phoning hours. Organizers create their own weekly schedules from the shifts offered, making the hours very flexible and convenient.
To inquire or apply: Please contact Gabriel Showers using the contact information above. Please include a brief summation of why you are personally interested in Peace Action and the work we do. Women, People of Color, and LGBTQ+ people are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship, established in 1987, is a competitive national fellowship program that provides college graduates with the opportunity to gain a Washington perspective on key issues of peace and security. Twice yearly, the Fellowship’s Board of Directors selects a group of outstanding individuals to spend six to nine months in Washington. Supported by a stipend, the Fellows serve as full-time junior staff members at the participating organization of their choice. The program also arranges meetings for the Fellows with policy experts. Many former Scoville Fellows have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in international relations and related fields and taken prominent positions in the field of peace and security with public-interest organizations, the Federal Government, and in academia. To date, 120 Fellowships have been awarded.
