Who We Are Looking For
ABOUT COMMON DEFENSE
Who We Are
Common Defense is the nation’s largest grassroots organization of progressive veterans, military family members, and civilian supporters. We bring together former service members to stand up for our communities against the rising tide of racism, hate, and violence, to organize against the entrenched power of greedy billionaires who have rigged our economy, and to champion an equitable and representative democracy, where “liberty and justice” truly is for all.
What We Do
Common Defense is an equal opportunity employer, and is strongly committed to welcoming, supporting, investing in, and empowering a workforce that reflects the full diversity of the military community we serve. We strongly seek and encourage candidates who are military veterans, women, LGBTQIA+, Native, People of Color, immigrants, and people with disabilities to apply.
