The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Needs a Web Guru
WordPress Web Design and Development Volunteer
What Are We Hoping to Achieve?
This is a critical time for international nuclear relations: U.S.-Russia, North Korea’s nuclear proliferation, India and Pakistan, just to name a few. At the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation we seek to reduce nuclear weapons arsenals, halt the spread of nuclear weapons, and minimize the risk of war by educating the public and policy makers. But we need help with spreading our message and amplifying our impact.
We would like a volunteer to help redesign our site’s overall look and feel, and layout to make it user friendly, visually appealing and improve its accessibility. We have a blog hosted on a separate WordPress site that also needs to be integrated in our existing Center website.
In addition, we would like to integrate our Facebook page and Twitter feed onto the website homepage, so visitors can see our latest social media activity.
