Resist from home! Online volunteer positions available
Research/talking points/blog IKC needs people to help us generate talking points and collect research for our weekly Calls to Action and Member of Congress Office Visits. We also need quick, written responses to breaking news events, and deeply researched blog entries to help our members understand complex issues.
Skills: Writing; Research
Time commitment: Variable depending on your interest
To get involved: Send an email to email@example.com and let us know why you’re interested in joining our movement. We would also love to see a writing sample, which could be just a couple of your past social media posts.
Graphics IKC has been blessed with talented graphics volunteers over the past year. Two of our original members have recently asked to step away from their responsibilities and we need to find capable replacements. This volunteer role is usually low-key and has longer deadline lead (than say the weekly email). However, there are times when a quick turn-around is necessary. Familiarity with web graphics as well as printing requirements will be most useful!
Time commitment: Variable | per assignment: about an hour
Skills: Adobe Photoshop or InDesign or other knowledge of other graphic tools; printing specs a plus
To get involved: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what motivates you to resist. A recent sampling of the variety of your work would be very helpful
Resist in person “Welcome Wagon” IKC has been so busy resisting we have been slow to welcome in all new volunteers in a timely way. This position would be for someone who is innately organized, and can get to know new IKC volunteers (through email, phone, and/or in-person meeting), and connect them with the right IKC action team.
Time commitment: Variable, depending on new member sign-ups
To get involved: Send an email to email@example.com and let us know what motivates you to level up your own volunteerism.
Office Visit Facilitator IKC began the resistance last year hosting office visits at all area Congresspersons’ district offices. There may be an opportunity to renew office visits as we continue to target issues and specific representatives. We need someone who can train quickly with one of our experienced office leads and then take the reins to make it their own. At a minimum, a facilitator would have to schedule the visits with the office staff, greet participants, make sure to take attendance, facilitate productive discussion with office staff and write a brief summary for weekly email / web blog.
Skills: Good scheduling and organizational ability; outgoing personality. An ideal facilitator would also take photos and live tweet during the visit – or recruit a friend for that role! We can help you learn Twitter, too.
Time commitment: 1.5 hours per office visit
To get involved: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “Office Visit Facilitator” and let us know why you’re interested in joining our movement. We’d also love to hear what you enjoy about MoC office visits and if there is anything you would improve, based on your past experience attending one.
Event planner IKC needs people who can assist with planning and running special events, which might be member meetings, educational advocacy, rallies or citizen town halls. Tasks change with each event, depending on collaborating organizations. It could be as varied as scouting locations, handing out programs, supplying cookies, running the live-stream or directing / parking traffic.
Skills: Showing up; ability to think on your toes;
Time commitment: Variable depending on your level of involvement. Each event usually takes about 2 hours of in-person volunteer time.
To get involved: Send an email to email@example.com with the title “Event planner” and let us know why you’re interested in joining our movement.
Other Opportunities: IKC needs help maintaining our website, leading Get-Out-The-Vote efforts, tracking what's going on with our partner groups and Indivisible National, and much more! We need you!
