Contact Congress Constituent Recruiter
As the success of our advocacy team grows, we need help expanding our network of constituents. The success of our Contact Congress program, in which we brief Congressional offices on Palestinian human rights issues, is dependent on constituents reaching out to their elected officials. Our goal is to develop a diverse network of 100 constituents per district in order to yield greater results in Congress.
As a volunteer, you will be expected to reach out to community groups and sister organizations, especially universities and places of worship, across the US to recruit new activists into our network. You must be comfortable with:
- Written and verbal communication- you will be sending lots of emails and making phone calls
- Working on a team- you must be available to join at least three advocacy team meetings a week
- Organizing data- you will manage new contacts in a database for record-keeping purposes
- Establishing and maintaining relationships- you will keep up with contacts and recruit them into our network
- Research- you will identify groups and individuals who are interested in advocating for Palestinian rights by contacting Congress
We're especially interested in candidates who would like to stay with us for at least a year.
If you are interested in this position, please send a resume, cover letter, and three references to email@example.com.
About Rebuilding Alliance
50 Woodside Plaza Ste. 627, Redwood City, CA 94061, US
Rebuilding Alliance is dedicated to advancing equal rights for the Palestinian people through education, advocacy, and support that assures Palestinian families the right to a home, schooling, economic security, safety, and a promising future.
We learned early-on that to build in war-torn communities one must partner locally with non-governmental organizations that hold the trust of the local community and maintain the highest standards of fiscal and personal integrity.
Everyone who works at Rebuilding Alliance is committed to building peace and justice through programs that make a tangible difference and together, we do our best to make RA a great place to work. Many who have joined RA as interns or in entry-level jobs have gone on to their dream-job or pursued advanced degrees.
One of our past interns wrote the following:
"I always talk about interning with Rebuilding Alliance as one of my most important, challenging and formative work experiences, especially when I'm in interviews. You asked and expected big things of me right away, and I'm so grateful for that - coordinating a teleconference series, making phone calls to important peacekeepers, offering insights in team meetings, updating our internet presence. These are skills that I value so highly, and that I'm sure will be so important as I enter this industry that is entirely new to me. I would also like to stay in touch with you and Rebuilding Alliance and help in any way I can in the coming years, whether through donations or volunteering my time when I'm back in the Bay Area."
