Overview

We are currently seeking Remote Recruiters to join us on an important and exciting campaign to provide the strategic recruitment necessary to win this fall.

There is so much at stake in this election. As we have seen over the last 4 years, leadership in government matters more than ever. Nearly 200,000 Americans have died of COVID19, and Donald Trump is on the record saying that he intentionally withheld information about it and downplayed its severity. Millions of acres are currently burning in wildfires in Washington, Oregon, and California in one of the largest natural disasters in history. We need our government proactively addressing climate change, not trying to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to new oil drilling. Systemic racism is real and clearly at the forefront of our collective daily lives. Yet as more Black people are shot or killed by police, Donald Trump and Republicans stoke racial tension for political gain. We need a change in leadership, and we need it fast. The election on November 3 will be the most important of our lifetimes. A strong ground game is the key to winning.

COVID-19 has altered the political landscape, but one thing remains the same – we will need to have in-person conversations with people to get out the vote. Thankfully, we can do this with low risk. We will provide PPE and substantial health and safety training, and we have developed a canvassing protocol that will allow us to do this critical work while keeping our staff and the people in our communities safe.

The Recruitment team consists of full-time staff who are responsible for coordinating and implementing nation-wide recruitment efforts.

If you are passionate about progressive politics, join our fight to defeat Donald Trump and vulnerable US Senators. You will identify, interview and hire the staff that will allow us to impact the November elections.
