Spring Quarterly 2020
Dear Friends of Nukewatch,
While John is taking a temporary leave of absence to beat off cancer (see The Secret of Joy is Resistance), there will be a few changes in the office. You may notice that this newsletter is half its usual length. We will return to our full length for the Summer Quarterly Nukewatch newsletter.
In the office I will continue to serve as Co-Director with the essential help of our Board of Directors, Bonnie Urfer, Arianne Stewart Peterson, Gail Vaughn, Jeff Peterson and YOU!
Did you ever wonder how Nukewatch does it all? Here is your chance to find out!
Nukewatch is currently seeking volunteers to fulfill programming and administrative duties necessary for the organization to function temporarily while our beloved Co-Director and Editor John LaForge is away (We know he is returning, because he left a sink full of dirty dishes). Nukewatch has a mission to fulfill, and we need your help to do it. Be part of an anti-nuclear group with a 40-year history! For a minimal time commitment you can help shape our anti-nuclear advocacy and resistance. Volunteer positions have the potential to become paid employment depending on future needs.
We have an in-office “Alpha” Volunteer Team which will meet biweekly, with childcare provided. There is a remote “Gamma” Team who contributes from the comfort of their homes, wherever they may be, to the abolition of nuclear weapons. We also have a Newsletter Team to get the Nukewatch Quarterly newsletter sent off by the deadline. We hope you’ll join us as we build our community and capacity, educate a larger audience, and become more inclusive for future sustainability. Please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org to support the continuity of Nukewatch with your time and talents.
In addition, do you like mud? Cutting wood? Keeping fires going? The solar-powered Plowshares Land Trust, home to Nukewatch, also has space for new community members. In the peace and quiet of rural Luck, Wisconsin, where the blue sky frames the white birch trees, there is a home waiting for the right person or people. Responsibilities are seasonally dependent — summertime gardening, winter fires, and springtime maple syruping. Call the Nukewatch office, (715) 472-4185, for more info.
For a nuclear-free future!
