Reynaldo Reyes-Arroyo has four years of experience in the nonprofit sector, a year of research experience, and earned a Bachelor of Arts in History and Peace, War, and Defense from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the United States. While working as an intern with Reverse the Trend and the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, he assisted in the preparation of a policy report to be delivered at the first Meeting of States Parties to the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Additionally, he assisted in building stronger coalitions between organizations to accomplish various organizational goals, such as the empowerment of frontline communities and stakeholders and advocating for Congresspeople to support the ICAN Pledge and the Norton Bill. In his research occupation, Reynaldo worked as an assistant on a small team preparing an exhaustive timeline of police brutality events and protests throughout the United States. Previously, he worked and volunteered as a canvasser for various progressive organizations addressing a range of issues from the endangerment of pollinators to nuclear proliferation. These experiences granted Reynaldo the opportunity to develop strong research, coalition-building, and interpersonal skills. Reynaldo is interested in conducting research on the humanitarian implications of irresponsible proliferation efforts and emerging weapons systems and hopes to lend his assistance to the effort to live in a world free of nuclear weapons.
