Hiring Immediately – Data Entry Staff Needed!
This is Not a Field or Fundraising Position.
$20/hr Full-time & Part-time
Join our campaign to qualify a Los Angeles ballot initiative. Our current approach towards housing solutions is not working. We need more innovation, bolder action, less red tape and bureaucracy. This measure would fund innovative homelessness prevention solutions and more effective approaches to move people off the streets and into housing, including repurposing vacant buildings, more street team engagement, and mental health and substance use treatment services.
Right now, hundreds of millions of dollars are set to be cut from the budget to address homelessness resulting in a dramatic increase in homeless people on the streets. This new measure will replace the prior sales tax and will help protect and maintain mental health treatment, street team engagement, substance use treatment, and other essential services that would otherwise be cut. Now is the time for our community to come together and ensure we have affordable housing solutions for all.
We’re urgently hiring data entry staff to review petition signatures gathered from Los Angeles voters to put this important initiative on the ballot in 2024!

This is an essential part of making sure this issue is put in front of voters in 2024.
