Position Description

Free Press is a national, nonpartisan organization that fights for everyone’s rights to connect and communicate. Free Press was founded in 2003 on the premise that an accessible, diverse, and equitable media system is essential for an informed citizenry and a thriving democracy. We fight to save the free and open Internet, curb runaway media consolidation, end mass surveillance, protect press freedom, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media. Our outreach and organizing activities prioritize working with people of color, women, and youth. The Campaign Organizer will execute both online and field organizing across campaigns, supporting our active campaigns. The organizer will lead on campaign planning, execution, and follow up as well as identifying, carrying out, and following up on a variety of member engagement activities across the organization. In collaboration with our communications, advocacy, and policy staff, this position will identify and support our most engaged activists, connect community members, plan and execute campaign events, and conduct campaign research. The organizer also will support our online organizing and engagement efforts by creating content for email outreach and blog posts and developing creative digital tactics.
