Overview

The Distributed Organizer sits on the Distributed Organizing Department and is responsible for maintaining the volunteer teams and systems that welcome new people to the movement. Primarily they do this through managing and supporting volunteer team leads who run our movement onboarding systems, such as welcome calls, the training and support program for new hubs (Sunrise volunteer chapters), and providing opportunities for anyone anywhere to engage in our electoral and campaign work for the first time.

To succeed in this role, the Distributed Organizer must have an orientation to leadership development and commitment to build healthy and diverse teams, be excited about the intersection of digital tools, automations and data, and be familiar with the challenges encountered by new organizers running campaigns and building a membership base across race and class for the first time.

We are looking for someone who is willing to learn, and enjoys working with young people in a creative and changing environment. Sunrise is a movement run by young people, and we are excited to help someone with energy and enthusiasm grow into this role. We are happy to work with you to learn the ins and outs of the digital tools you will use on a daily basis.

About Sunrise Movement

Sunrise Movement is dedicated to stopping climate change and creating millions of good jobs in the process, by building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.  In November 2018, following our 6-month 75-person electoral organizing fellowship, Sunrise Semester, we launched the campaign for a Green New Deal alongside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In 2019 and 2020, Sunrise has continued fighting for a Green New Deal and elevating the urgency of climate change in the public and the media. We also launched our Green New Deal champions by endorsing candidates across the nation fighting for livable future. We are shaping the narrative around climate change while also standing in solidarity with other movements.

Sunrise Movement Education Fund (501c3) and Sunrise (501c4) are organizations dedicated to supporting the mobilization and leadership of Sunrise Movement.
