DIGITAL ORGANIZER, TEXTING AND ORGANIZING TEAM

SHORT-TERM CONTRACTOR: DIGITAL ORGANIZING


DIGITAL ORGANIZER, TEXTING AND ORGANIZING TEAM

Location: Remote through December, New York City beginning in January 2021

Stand Up America is a political advocacy organization focused on resisting Trump’s corrupt agenda and strengthening our democracy. We’re working to increase voter participation, combat racist voter suppression, and unrig the corrupt system that put Trump in the White House and stands in the way of progressive change.

After the 2016 election, millions of progressives came together in the Stand Up America community to resist the dangerous policies of the Trump Administration. Trump’s election made clear the extent to which our democracy has been co-opted to serve a wealthy few and advance conservative priorities — and failed the majority of American voters.

We’re focused on protecting and expanding access to the ballot box during the COVID-19 pandemic, enacting bold reforms that will strengthen our democracy at the state and national level, and defeating Trump.

We believe that virtual organizing and mobilization are essential to securing progressive victories, especially in 2020. To maximize our impact, we rely on digital tools and create online spaces where our volunteers can gather and effect change.

Our cutting-edge digital organizing program has driven over one million calls to lawmakers and mobilized more than 75,000 activists to rally in the streets to demand our representatives oppose Trump’s corrupt agenda. In the 2018 midterms, we recruited thousands of volunteers for progressive House races across the country, registered over 10,000 voters, and sent more than 600,000 peer-to-peer text messages to help get out the vote. This year, our volunteers have already sent over two million text messages to register voters and get out the vote.

This position is a great opportunity for an organizer to learn how to use digital tools to maximize grassroots engagement, or a digital organizer to further hone their skills, and help run one of the largest and most effective digital organizing programs in the country.

The Digital Organizer will join a mission-driven, fast-paced, and energetic team that is remote for now, but is primarily based in New York, NY.

Role Requirements

You will:

  • Help manage, motivate, and grow Stand Up America’s distributed organizing team (for folks who don’t know the jargon, this is our online volunteer organizing team), focused on volunteer management, recruitment and success.
  • Become well-versed in peer to peer texting (that’s texting folks in the voter file) broadcast texting (that’s texting folks in our Stand Up America community), distributed organizing tools, and be able to understand and implement organizing strategy.
  • Help implement creative ideas for ways our community members can take action through distributed organizing and broadcast text tactics to achieve our political goals.
  • Execute and contribute to the weekly calendar of communications we send to our volunteers and community.
  • Produce razor-sharp copy for the broadcast texting, peer-to-peer, and overall distributed organizing program that motivates our progressive audience to take action.

You have:

  • Experience working or interning in field, community, distributed, or digital organizing for a campaign, union, or nonprofit.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills.
  • The ability to motivate others to take action.
  • A commitment to racial equity.
  • Strong and fast writing ability
  • Strong organizational and problem-solving skills.
  • An ability to be flexible and work effectively in a fast-paced environment.

You are:

  • A community, field, or digital organizer eager to learn new skills.
  • Passionate about progressive values, strengthening our democracy, and mobilizing millions to defeat Trump.
  • Cool under pressure.
  • Able to quickly adapt to new technologies.
  • Eager to think big and get creative!
