Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, Colorado’s Premier Nonprofit run by and for people with disabilities working for the Social Justice of all Coloradans with disabilities is looking to hire a temporary, part-time Digital Organizing Assistant (DOA) to assist with our Get Out the Vote (GOTV) efforts, #Vote4Medicaid Campaign, and Census Outreach using the messaging app Outvote to engage in relational organizing.
Digital Organizing is the process in which a person emails/ texts friends and family members with the intent of persuading them to take action.
Many CCDC members and Coloradans with significant disabilities (nearly a half-million individuals) utilize Medicaid for health care, Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), and Durable Medical Equipment (DME). Medicaid enables Coloradans to have a choice in where they live, who assists them in daily activities (bathing, getting in and out of bed), and remain members of their communities. Over a million people in Colorado rely on Medicaid. Our aim is to expand the numbers of people who understand the importance of Medicaid.
In November we need to elect a President and a Colorado Senator who align with our values and mission of Social Justice for people with disabilities. If the position is able to be extended beyond the November election, the DOA will assist CCDC members to spread pro-Medicaid and other disability rights messages.
The Digital Organizing Assistant will engage in base building (outreach, engage, motivate) CCDC members to spread Outvote (messaging app and web-based application) messages via email or texts. You will work with current adopters of Outvote to expand the group and build and use lists. You will craft regular messages to keep engagement up and identify actions that people can take while recruiting others. You will also increase CCDC membership through this process by helping current members reach out to invite friends and family to join CCDC. CCDC members will spread messages and encourage their friends to use Outvote to spread messages. You will identify active and engaged members and encourage/support them to engage in leadership opportunities.
Due to the need to maintain social distance, all activities will be via phone, text, or zoom for the foreseeable future.
This is a part-time temporary position under the supervision of our Director of Community Organizing. There is a possibility of continuing and expanding in the future. The current offer is for approximately 10 hours per week for $18/hr ($18.50 for Bilingual). Possible bonus for meeting specific numeric goals for membership increases and the number of people reached.
Send Dawn Howard, Director of Community Organizing (firstname.lastname@example.org) a resume or letter including a description of experience using apps and social media plus three references by August 11, 2020 at 5pm
