Overview

ABOUT THE ROLE

In 2024, Relentless is running a first-of-its-kind compensated relational program at scale across battleground states using Rally.

Our virtual mobilization events provide participants with an experience of enthusiasm, support, and confidence for the work they are doing—so they can continue to be trusted messengers to their communities.
