Community Canvassers and Team Leaders  -  Help Get Out the Vote!

Hiring Immediately -  $20-25/hr, Full-time & Part-time


The Outreach Team and New Georgia Project Action Fund are hiring door-to-door Canvassers and Team Leaders to engage with members of the community in a friendly and safe way and ensure every voter casts a ballot in the upcoming election. Black voters can be the most powerful in Georgia. It would have only taken 55,000 more votes for Stacey Abrams to become the first Black woman governor of Georgia, but nearly 900 thousand Black voters didn't vote in the Gubernatorial election two years ago. Those in power in Georgia have been actively making voting difficult but we are committed to helping lift the voices of People of Color and young people across the state. 

We have experience doing this work during the COVID19 pandemic and have developed strict health and safety protocols that include a contactless approach to keep our staff and communities safe - we provide all of the training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) you will need!
