Description

ProgressVA is a multi-issue progressive advocacy organization that combines cutting edge online organizing and communications with rapid and hard-hitting earned media strategies. Year round, ProgressVA works to engage citizens from across the Commonwealth around issues of immediate state or local concern.

Our mission is to provide a strong, credible voice in advancing progressive solutions to critical community problems. But we don't do that on our own---we work as a communications team for the entire progressive community.

We're a marketing department for progressive ideas---a campaign that never stops. We work year-round to challenge conservative propaganda in the media and make sure that progressive perspectives are heard.

Research

Requirements

We want you if you are:
Organized and detail-oriented
Innovative, creative, and ready to learn from failure (failure is part of the work: embrace it, learn from it, and move on)
A motivated self-starter with a strong work ethic
A strong writer and researcher
Knowledgeable of, and interested in, state and national politics
Committed to advancing progressive policy and values
Flexible to work on new projects as needed

When/Where: Plan on 10-20 hours per week. We're looking for people who are smart and quick, but breaking events also generate work.
