Description

Organization Overview


As the nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group, NARAL Pro-Choice America is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans, including abortion access.


Along with more than 1.2 million member activists from all 50 states and network of state affiliates, NARAL works to guarantee that each woman has access to the full range of reproductive freedoms. This means we’re on the front lines in the fight to expand access to abortion, make contraception more affordable, prohibit discrimination against pregnant women, and ensure all parents have access to paid leave. In recognition of our work defending the constitutional right to abortion, Fortune Magazine rated NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

At NARAL, we don’t operate or litigate; we organize and mobilize. Working together, we push our friends to be bolder, lift up the champions fighting with us on the front line for true reproductive freedom, and we shine a spotlight of accountability on bad actors that work to impose their ideological agenda on others.


Primary Duties:


  • Engage with pro-choice supporters & voters over the phone, educating them on pro-choice issues, campaigns and candidates.


Best Candidates Will Have:


  • Good communication and interpersonal skills on the phone and in person
  • Ability to follow general script and adjust as needed to audience
  • Ability to consistently meet nightly call goals
  • Basic computer skills
  • Able to sit for long periods of time
  • Consistently show up on-time for weekly shifts
  • Positive attitude, able to be a team player and contribute to a good workplace culture
  • Ability to work respectfully with people of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Supportive of mission and philosophy of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
  • Previous electoral phone and/or door canvassing experience, either in a paid or unpaid capacity, is preferred.
