Fundraising Assistant.  Money makes the world go round – and that is certainly true today in politics.   We’re looking for a volunteer with development and event production experience; someone who is goal-oriented, loves a challenge and has a good time hitting the target.   This position requires strong organization skills, genuine appreciation of donors, and knowledge of Excel and related computer programs.

Learn about major donor development, plan and assist with events, snail mail and crowdfunding. You will acquire the most valuable skill for anyone who wants to make their mark “behind the scenes” or out front as a candidate.

Writer
Writer. Get the attention of bloggers and editors with your winning words.

Publications often ask for descriptions of our campaign, for news articles about women in politics and for opinion pieces relating our work to current affairs.

Who didn’t have an opinion about Jill Abramson and the New York Times?

We need a writer who can work with us to fulfill those requests, write first drafts, edit and proof.

Have you written for publication, but need practice to raise your game?  Would you like to build your portfolio?  This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to be a columnist or blog regularly.  Love of language, respect for grammar rules and creative flair required.  Humor welcome.

Progressive Alliance Liaison.  Can you help us stay in touch with our more than 30 allied women’s political organizations and expand our network to include the larger progressive community?   This position facilitates communication among a large network of organizations that share our goal of increasing the number of women in the legislature.

Pleasant but purposeful phone manner, strong organization and interview skills are helpful in this position.  An ability to work within a complex organization, collect, gather, share and disseminate useful information to proper parties is key.  Some writing and web experience also helpful.  If you want to see the inside of coalition politics, we are a good place to start!
