The position will ideally be based anywhere in our geographic footprint (eastern PA), but remote work is possible. This position will work closely with and be directly supervised by PA Stand Up’s Deputy Organizing Director, and will also work closely with the Organizing Director and Lead Organizers for our staffed regions.

PA Stands Up is an independent people-powered organization, by and for the many. We organize working people—black, white, and brown—across Pennsylvania’s cities, towns, and rural areas. Our chapters develop grassroots leaders and organization to make a difference on issues and in elections. Together we’re building the durable infrastructure that’s needed to win governing power and enact a bold agenda for the common good.
