This fall, Colorado Fair Share Action is partnering with Work for Progress to hire Election Canvassers to help us elect U.S. Representative Jared Polis as Governor and other candidates who want to make a difference on issues like global warming and getting big money out of politics.
Applicants should be friendly, outgoing, politically savvy, and creative. You will work with a team of committed canvasser activists to have face to face conversations with voters in critical districts this summer and fall.
We know that elections are not the beginning or the end of social change activism. To create meaningful change, we need to build people power and run smart campaigns to influence elected and corporate decision-makers. But elections can help, especially when there is a big difference between the candidates on important issues.
An Election Canvasser’s basic mission is straightforward: knock on doors in key communities to identify, persuade, and mobilize as many citizens and volunteers as possible to complete the campaign work of our partners.
The first two weeks of canvassing typically include skills workshops and in-the-field training, during which canvassers learn the basic facts about the campaign and develop the voter contact skills needed to be effective.
Election Canvassers work 5 days a week from 2:30pm to 10pm.
Leadership opportunities are available. Field Managers oversee a team of Election Canvassers. They are responsible for recruiting, training and motivating Election Canvassers to hit their goals.
Work For Progress is looking for candidates with all levels of experience. You’ll have access to an excellent training program to learn how to be a successful activist canvasser.
Election Canvassers can earn up to $18 an hour. Field Managers can earn up to $20 an hour.
Work for Progress is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, disability, pregnancy, or veteran status.
