Winter 2017 Nevada Organizing Fellow


Overview

Women’s rights are under attack across the country and NARAL is fighting back!  That’s why we are proud to expand our Organizing Fellowship program to include Las Vegas and will be hiring immediately for a new fellow.

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.

Responsibilities

Fellows will be held accountable to a set of monthly goals and are required to commit 20+ hours a week for 12 weeks to the fellowship.  Fellows will be paid a stipend of $15.00/hour. Duties will include:

  • Engage with Las Vegas residents through things like door to door outreach or phone calls and provide education on pro-choice issues and values.
  • Serve as a passionate and professional ambassador for pro-choice issues in Nevada.
  • Willing to engage your own personal networks and communities in NARAL’s work;
  • Excellent attention to detail;
  • Experience with Microsoft Office and Google Drive;
