MoveOn is a diverse and vibrant community of millions of people working together to create progressive change in America. We are an innovative campaigning organization that supports people throughout the country to take action through driving impactful campaigns that influence the behavior of people and institutions, the outcomes of elections, and expand the realities of what’s possible. We organize to challenge entrenched power, while pursuing economic, racial, and social justice and a vision of a country in which everyone can thrive.

MoveOn has a particularly important role to play in the Trump era. We are working to defeat Donald Trump and the GOP in 2020 by building a powerful, multiracial, and economic populist movement that will give voters something to vote for, not just against—and we're also working to defend communities that are on the front lines of Trump and GOP attacks, including immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and women. In service of that mission, in 2020 and beyond, MoveOn will drive impactful, movement-connected, multichannel, nimble campaigns aimed at impact.

We are looking for a motivated Organizing Intern to support a vibrant online community of MoveOn Mobilizers ready to organize and take action in their communities in service of MoveOn’s election and issue campaigns.


Responsibilities

  • Build and maintain relationships with a small team of volunteer leaders and support them to moderate an online community of MoveOn Mobilizers.
  • Prep and co-facilitate monthly organizing community calls with the Organizing Community Manager.
  • Contribute to material creation (such as campaign FAQs, host guides, protest signs, etc.).
  • Perform light data management to maintain dashboard, analyze metrics, and coordinate volunteer logistics.


A successful candidate will ...

  • Be interested in learning more about distributed organizing at scale.
  • Have a strong equity analysis and willingness to have courageous conversations about privilege and oppression with individuals at different stages of learning.
  • Have strong interpersonal and communication skills.
  • Proactively reach out to colleagues and MoveOn members to move the work along.
  • Be committed to creating and modeling a culture of consistency, accountability, appreciation, joy, responsiveness, and respect among volunteer leaders.
  • Be comfortable with technology and flexible when dealing with individuals with varying degrees of tech savviness.
  • Willing to self-reflect, learn, grow, and stretch themselves.


Required skills and experience

  • At least one cycle of organizing experience in an advocacy or electoral campaign.
  • Strong equity analysis and demonstrated understanding, commitment to, and prioritization of racial and social justice, and experience working effectively with different constituencies.
  • Self-directedness—MoveOn is a virtual office, and while you will interact with your colleagues constantly, you will be driving your own workflow and output. Excellent personal organization and time management skills are key.
  • Ability to learn MoveOn's suite of organizing technology (Facebook groups, Spoke, ActionKit, and Slack).
