Job Opening: PEP Is Recruiting A New Executive Director

The Peace Economy Project, founded in 1977, researches military spending, educates about the hazards of an unchecked military-industrial-congressional complex, and advocates for conversion from a military to a more stable peace-based economy. Qualified individuals are encouraged to apply to be the next Director of this unique non-profit organization.
The Director manages all day-to-day operations of the Peace Economy Project. This includes writing op-eds and letters to the editor to be published in local newspapers, speaking at rallies and events, and coordinating regular fundraising campaigns. The director is also responsible for maintaining relationships with the board of the organization, with fellow leaders in the peace and social justice community, and with members of the organization.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter who possesses strong analytical skills and the ability to make complex military and federal issues relevant at the local level.
