We are good people doing good things, and we are looking for a stellar individual to join our team.

- You will support strategic planning processes including intake conversations with organizations and key staff and partners
- You will track the narrative and political dynamics in electoral and issue advocacy areas

What Makes You a Great Fit 

- You have 6+ years of experience working on electoral campaigns or at a party committee, for elected federal or state government officials, on Capitol Hill, at an advocacy, non-profit, or similar organization with a focus on coalition and/or grassroots organizing and management experience in a statewide or national regional role. 
- You have experience creating or leading trainings
- You have experience working with BIPOC and frontline communities

- You are a strong interpersonal communicator
- You’re passionate about progressive causes, particularly political campaigns.
- You are kind, friendly, and have a good sense of humor

Please keep in mind: Research has shown that candidates from underrepresented backgrounds only apply to jobs when they meet 100% of the requirements vs. their majority counterparts, which apply at a much higher rate if they meet 50-60% of the requirements. Therefore, if you are interested in the role, we would love to hear how you can leverage your talents to be an excellent addition to the Arc Initiatives team.
