Description

Are you concerned about the future of the kids in our most vulnerable communities?


Are you a student, parent, or passionate individual looking for a job that allows you to get paid to help create a brighter future for everyone? 


Join our team at Jois for Congress in fighting for a progressive, millennial leader with new ideas and solid advocacy experience.


NJ Congressional District 7 has been under the thumb of Leonard Lance since 2009, who talks like a moderate but votes like a hard line conservative with a 93% NRA rating. Come help us dust out the cobwebs of the system and bring in a guy with fresh ideas and a progressive voice.


Goutam Jois says it best:


“I am running for Congress because Washington is broken. Our shared values—justice, fairness, dignity—are under assault like never before. As a litigator and activist, I’ve fought to defend those values and won. I will bring that experience to Washington to fight for everyone in the Seventh District.”


We are hiring passionate individuals who are committed to being a part of a movement to change the outcomes not only for today’s youth, but for the many constituents Congressman Lance has left behind. Join a team that is driven by the collective mission of championing equality for all!
