Canvasser, Field Manager, and Campaign Organizer jobs in Chicago:
The Fund for the Public Interest is working with Environment Illinois on a campaign to protect Lake Michigan. The Lake is one of the most beautiful parts of our state. Unfortunately, billions of gallons of toxic pollution flow into Lake Michigan every year, causing hundreds of beach closings and public health hazards. So, we’re working to get the Obama administration to restore clean water protections that will keep toxic waste out of Lake Michigan, by putting public pressure on him to support the Clean Water Restoration act.
Job Activities/Scope: We sign up members and fundraise for Environment Illinois through door canvassing. We get out into Illinois’ neighborhoods and talk with as many people as possible about the work we do at Environment Illinois. We identify people who support the issue and get them involved. Canvassers will receive rigorous training on the skill of canvassing, and will have the opportunity to receive optional, additional trainings on campaign skills such as generating local media coverage, petitioning, and campaign strategy.
Knowledge and Skills: There are no requirements for prior knowledge or skills. Broadly, we are looking for candidates who work hard, communicate well, and are interested in working toward positive social change.
Compensation/Pay: The average pay is $10-$15 per hour.
