ORGANIZATION: LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF OAKLAND INC

In the weeks before the November 2022 election, the League of Women Voters Oakland will host or co-host several community events, voter registration, non-partisan candidate forums and information forums to help voters learn about key ballot measures and local races. Most will involve Oakland elections, some might before Alameda County races and ballot measures.

The event ground rules and format are established by the long traditions of the League of Women Voters (affecting all of its local chapters).

An event coordinator can work on one or more events and will work primariily on logistics in collaboration with League leadership. League leaders will communicate with candidates or issue experts. The event coordinator will assist with outreach and publicity, identifying venues and co-sponsors and assisting with program flow and management on the day of the event.
We anticipate that planning can be completed virtually. If the events are staged virtually, the coordinator will still be needed to assist with logistics.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. We pursue our mission through education on major public policy issues and by influencing public policy through research and advocacy.
