How will this volunteer opportunity benefit you?
How this benefits you too – You collaborate closely with like-minded individuals and experience what it means to be politically engaged. We provide best-in-class advocacy support to train and coach volunteers so that they can take on the kind of work that a lobbyist or public relations pro might - but with the authenticity, passion and credibility of everyday people driven by a mission, not by a profit.
