Organizer

Wilmington, DE
Full Time
2024 Organizing
Entry Level

We are seeking talent to help lead us to victory in 2024. We are assisting state parties by collecting resumes and applications for key roles to help elect Democrats up and down the ticket. We are looking for highly motivated, passionate, and talented Organizers in Battleground States across the country.

They execute the statewide organizing program in their area of the state (AKA Turf). They should have or be able to foster a deep appreciation for the voters in their Turf. They will recruit and develop a number of volunteer leaders to engage in direct and relational voter contact. They will collaborate with their volunteers to build and expand local volunteer infrastructure. They will report to their Regional Organizing Director and work with them to ensure that voter contact goals are met. At their core, an organizer connects and activates people; is ready to build relationships; loves talking to voters; and believes in developing and coaching others.  

Responsibilities

  • Work to build local grassroots volunteer leadership that will then engage in direct voter contact, volunteer recruitment and retention. 
  • Implement grassroots organizing tactics, including organizing and executing effective activities, such as community events, house meetings, tabling, high traffic canvassing, door-to-door canvassing & phone banks. 
  • Build the local volunteer infrastructure necessary for success in November and beyond.
  • Meet and exceed goals for volunteer recruitment & retention as well as direct voter contact.

You’d be a good fit for this role if…

  • Strong commitment to Democratic values and enthusiasm for electing Joe Biden and Democrats up and down the ballot.
  • You love connecting with others, motivating action, and building coalitions. 
  • You’re solutions oriented and are able to take and implement feedback.
  • You’re competitive about hitting goals - you’re probably someone who took games with friends and family growing up seriously and wanted to win.
  • You’re able to build authentic relationships across lines of difference, such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, ability, gender identity, citizenship status, or other identities. You understand how to take an inclusive lens into all aspects of work.
  • You have the capacity and willingness to work long hours during peak season, rolling up your sleeves and getting the work done.
  • You have access to reliable transportation, and are willing to travel frequently.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability
Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form CC-305
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026
Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
