Do you care about the criminal justice reform, LGBTQ+ rights, or racial justice? Would you like to spend your semester learning to organize a grassroots advocacy campaign and drive digital engagement for one of the most marginalized populations in America?
The Just Future Project is looking for a dynamic, independent university student willing to pilot the CRM, webpage content management, and social media for a new campaign challenging pre-crime preventative detention laws in Virginia.
Must be 18+, willing to learn unfamiliar database and email systems with minimal oversight, and able to commit to at least 10 hours per week.
Much of 21stcentury organizing happens digitally. You will learn how these systems work and provide the technical infrastructure for the outreach and engagement campaign. Materials will be written by a veteran criminal justice reform advocate, but you will run the systems that send out emails, maintain the growing database of grassroots supporters, and mobilize those supporters to take direct action (such as contacting their elected officials).
Graphic arts skills are a plus (for work on infographics and design layout), but not required.
If you would like to learn more, please email email@example.com with a brief cover letter, resume, and a writing sample you feel accurately demonstrates your written communication skills. Questions are welcome and more details will be provided to interested applicants on the focus of our grassroots organizing campaign.
