SUMMER 2004 VOTER MOBILIZATION TRAINING AND JOB FAIR

This summer, the Center for Progressive Leadership will support the greatest mobilization of progressive political activists this country has ever seen.


Progressive non-profit organizations around the country are looking for trained field organizers to help them identify, educate and mobilize voters supportive of their issues.


CPL aims to meet that need through targeted Voter Mobilization Training programs for individuals prepared to travel and work full time as a Field Organizer managing a 60-day push to Election Day.


GET THE TRAINING YOU NEED:

- Developing a strategy to communicate with voters about progressive issues.
- Recruiting and managing volunteers to implement your strategy.
- Communicating with voters door-to-door, on the phones and online.
- Identifying, educating and mobilizing voters for Election Day!


FOR THE JOB YOU WANT

- We will help place you in full time, paid field organizing positions with key progressive organizations running direct voter outreach campaigns.


Each training will conclude with a Campaign Job Fair where you will learn about paid opportunities to work full time as a Field Organizer on a progressive field campaign. Opportunities last from August-November -- trainees should be prepared to travel to live in the regions where they will be organizing.
