- Work with the staff and partners to organize actions, press events and prepare testimony for public hearings.
- Develop the leadership of working people to share their stories with the media and online.
- Build meaningful partnerships with community and policy allies to support campaigns, our members, and core organizing work.
- Minimum 2 years organizing campaign experience, ideally using digital strategies.
- Strong writing, research and communication skills.

- Familiarity with digital strategies and online to offline organizing.
