Overview

About The Outreach Team

The Outreach Team is a premier national field firm. We partner with organizations working to solve some of the biggest problems facing our society — from protecting human rights to fighting climate change — and help them build the resources they need to make an impact. We are a people-powered enterprise; our campaigns are effective because we hire diverse teams of talented people, invest in our staff, and treat them well.

We are currently seeking Field Directors to join us on an important and exciting campaign to help Reproductive Freedom for All protect access to reproductive healthcare by going door-to-door to engage with residents in Arizona. Now more than ever we must protect the right to abortion, contraceptive care, paid family leave, and pregnancy and postpartum care. Reproductive Freedom for All is a non-profit advocacy organization. We organize and mobilize our members to fight for access to abortion, birth control, paid parental leave, and protections from pregnancy discrimination. Reproductive Freedom For All Arizona and our 75,000 members in the state are working in coalition to remove current restrictions on abortion, as well as prevent any future restrictions on reproductive freedom. We are hiring Deputy Director positions in Maricopa County to start mid-April.

 

Field Directors will recruit, train, and manage a team of local canvassers to talk to Arizonans about the state of abortion access. This position is expected to train canvassers in the field while canvassing themselves to lead by example; they must also communicate long and short term goals to staff and manage campaign reporting. Field Directors manage canvassers and Team Leads and report to the Lead Director.

 

Additionally, the Lead Campaign Director will manage a team of two Deputy Directors, and will be responsible for building an office to scale from the ground up. This position reports to the Project Director.

 

We are hiring immediately. This position will run through the week of June 24 with opportunities to extend.
