Fellowship of Reconciliation-USA is looking for a researcher and content writer to help build the resources section of a campaign to challenge Christian nationalism – what it is, who it applies to, who is working on countering, and how people of faith can Reclaim the Name of God.
The Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR-USA) is part of a global network of 50 branches, groups, and affiliates, with a national base of more than 80 chapters, faith allies, and grassroots affiliates. As an interfaith organization, FOR-USA’s mission is to organize, train, and grow a diverse movement of people of conscience committed to using the transformative power of nonviolence to create peace, end structures of violence and war, and build the beloved community.
For more than 100 years, FOR-USA members have courageously and relentlessly addressed the most pressing social issues of our times. Originally founded as a pacifist movement to support the rights of conscience in resistance to war and military conscription, through the decades we have tackled such diverse and intersectional issues as labor rights, environmental degradation, mass incarceration, extending the voting franchise to all, ending the death penalty, combatting religious hatred, gun violence, nuclear abolition, and much more. Our work, which currently involves the building of a flagship campaign to overcome Christian nationalism, is typically done in coalition with trusted partners. https://forusa.org
