I hope that you and your loved ones are doing well during this very difficult time. My name is Molly Ingalls, and I'm the Lead Coach for Florida with Organizing Corps 2020. I’m reaching out to share information about Organizing Corps 2020, a project to train organizers to work on the presidential campaign for the Democratic Party.
Organizing Corps 2020 is offering Virtual Bootcamps to ensure that the future presidential nominee has the staff needed to take back the White House and put competent leaders in seats up and down the ballot. Now more than ever, campaigns will need smart, effective, and trained organizers who are ready to problem-solve, adapt best practices to a physically distanced world, and develop creative ways of connecting with volunteers and voters in order to bring new possibilities to life and make campaigns and elections truly accessible. I’m contacting you because I want to make sure that the opportunity to join Organizing Corps 2020 in this work is available to your community.
In May, Organizing Corps 2020 will host 1-week virtual organizer trainings for those with local connections to AZ, FL, GA, MI, NC, PA, & WI. Admitted corps members who complete the program will receive a $500 technology and supplies stipend as well as direct support in securing a full-time, salaried position on the presidential campaign through November 3, 2020. The deadline to apply is April 18th. Program details and the application can be found at organizingcorps2020.com.
Can you share this opportunity with your network, and help Organizing Corps 2020 connect with people interested in working on the presidential campaign? I especially hope that this message can reach:
- People living in or going to school in Florida or other battleground states who are fired up & ready to go
- Recent graduates and those interested in (re)launching their careers in politics/campaigns
- Adults working in career development services
- Other mission-aligned networks and communities, student groups, and alumni lists
