Job Description

**Summary: **In 2023, Ohio became the nation’s foremost battleground for protecting reproductive rights – winning a ballot initiative fight that gave hope to Democrats across the country. In 2024, Ohio will be the center of the battle for control of the U.S. Senate. Ohio must re-elect Senator Sherrod Brown, a champion for workers and the deciding vote on critical legislation. This year offers Democrats the chance to take control of the Ohio Supreme Court, make gains in the state legislature, and defend three battleground congressional seats.
**Community Organizers will be the face of the campaign for Sherrod Brown and Ohio Democrats in key communities across the state.** Folks in this role will **engage with voters at a grassroots level through door-knocking, event organizing, and friend-to-friend and relational organizing**. Community Organizers will spend significant time **organizing in traditionally under-represented communities to increase voter participation and help bring new volunteers into the campaign’s field offices and volunteer pipeline**. Community Organizers will have regular, weekly goals for volunteer engagement and voter contact in their turfs, and will be a key part of our campaign team. This position is full time, in-person, based in specific areas throughout the state of Ohio, and will report to an assigned Regional Organizing Director.
**Key Responsibilities & Expectations:**

- Recruit volunteers for the campaign by attending and hosting events, making recruitment calls, and working with local community leaders
- Develop weekly goal plans, and work with Field Organizers in your given turf to increase volunteer engagement and identify local volunteer leaders
- Other responsibilities as assigned by the Organizing Director, Deputy Organizing Director, or Regional Organizing Director. _Travel will be required within the assigned region to meet with volunteers and voters and/or transfer supplies, and Organizers will receive a monthly travel stipend to help cover these costs._
**Preferred Skills & Qualifications:**
