The nuclear threat is more real than ever. Join us to talk about the role nuclear disarmament work should play in the broader resistance movement. We’ll talk about how we can work together to prevent nuclear war and put an end to the exploitative and morally bankrupt system that support these horrific weapons. And, importantly, how this work intersects with and can lift up a wide range of other progressive causes from women’s rights and immigration to climate change and safety nets.
Cecili is the Director of Beyond the Bomb, leading a team of kick-ass campaigners and activists to mobilize against the threat of nuclear war and weapons. She has nearly two decades of experience leading mission-driven campaigns with organizations including Amnesty International USA, RESULTS Educational Fund, and the National Partnership for Women & Families. Most recently she founded and served as the Chief Strategist for We Divine Water, a consulting group helping smart and passionate changemakers build strategic and effective campaigns. A strong believer in continually building power and capacity, Cecili has trained thousands of campaigners on how to maximize their impact within their organizations and in the world at large. She also serves as a faculty member at the Center for Social Design at the Maryland Institute College of Arts where she teaches a graduate seminar on campaign strategy. When she’s not campaigning, she can be found freezing at an ice rink with her skating daughters or running slowly in a forest.
