Maryland PIRG is seeking a Campaign Associate to help lead our Democracy for the People campaign.
We know the problems facing our democracy are large and deeply rooted. But we also know that there are changes we can make immediately that will pave the way for restoring our democracy. We’re researching and advocating for new ways to protect and restore our democracy. In particular, we are running campaigns to get big money out of politics and modernize voting.
Big Money Out: Our democracy has a big money problem. In 2016, fewer than 400 families gave more than half of all of the money raised in the presidential race. We’re working to bring the power back to the people by passing small donor empowerment programs at the state and local levels.
Modernize the Vote: Registering to vote should be easy, accurate and automatic. And while our federal government has yet to make this a national priority, states are starting to step up to the plate. Maryland is one of 16 states with some form of automatic voter registration.
Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate. Ideal candidates will have leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, an eagerness to learn, and be ready for a challenge. We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.
Pay & Benefits
The target annual compensation for this position is $28,500-$30,000 in the first year. Maryland PIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
We’re also hiring Campaign Associates to work on other campaigns in locations across the country. We accept applications on a rolling basis.
