NARAL Pro-Choice America seeks Organizing Fellows in Pennsylvania, New York, Iowa, Nevada, Wisconsin, Georgia and Illinois.
As the nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group, NARAL Pro-Choice America is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans, including abortion access.
Along with more than one million member activists from all 50 states and network of state affiliates, NARAL works to guarantee that each woman has access to the full range of reproductive freedoms. This means we’re on the front lines in the fight to expand access to abortion, make contraception more affordable, prohibit discrimination against pregnant woman, and ensure all parents have access to paid leave. In recognition of our work defending the constitutional right to abortion, Fortune Magazine rated NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
At NARAL, we don’t operate or litigate; we organize and mobilize. Working together, we push our friends to be bolder, lift up the champions fighting with us on the front line for true reproductive freedom, and we shine a spotlight of accountability on bad actors that works to impose their ideological agenda on others.
Women’s rights are under attack across the country and NARAL is fighting back! That’s why we are proud to introduce our Organizing Fellowship program for applicants in Pennsylvania, New York, Iowa, Nevada, Wisconsin, Georgia and Illinois.
NARAL Fellows will work with our organizers throughout the country to engage activists, members, and politicians in the fights NARAL cares about – protecting abortion access, making sure contraception is available and affordable, ending pregnancy discrimination, and securing paid family leave.
As a Fellow, you’ll be on the front lines of issue organizing as the country gears up for the crucial 2018 election cycle. Fellows will be trained in organizing best practices and will gain the confidence and leadership skills to make a difference in their communities. We’ll teach Fellows how to talk about NARAL’s issues and how to develop a personal story that relates our fights to our shared values.
Fellows will be held accountable to a set of monthly goals and are required to commit 10 hours a week for 12 weeks to the fellowship (January 29 – April 20). Fellows will be paid a stipend of $15.00/hour.
