Who We Are
Open Democracy is a New Hampshire-based nonpartisan nonprofit working to achieve a multiracial democracy that works for all. We work to limit the influence of wealthy interest money in politics, protect the freedom to vote, and ensure fair redistricting so that all Granite Staters have a say in their government. Founded by iconic U.S. campaign finance reformer, Doris “Granny D” Haddock (1910-2010), Open Democracy engages thousands in nonpartisan grassroots campaigns, legislative advocacy, and public education.
Democracy Dollars Organizing
Open Democracy is seeking a Democracy Dollar Organizer to help grow grassroots support for the democracy movement in New Hampshire. Organizers will receive training in organizing and communications, and will work directly on one or more of the following campaigns:
- Relationship-building & Advocacy: Organizing actions, events, and advocacy for legislation to strengthen democracy. Responsibilities include developing weekly actions, social media communications, press communications, talking to elected officials, communicating with and recruiting team members, and more.
- Organize volunteers and ask questions of candidates: Ahead of the 2024 presidential race, we have a golden opportunity to ensure that issues we care about—solutions like Democracy Dollars and too much money in our political system—become part of the national discourse. We will focus on the New Hampshire Primary, where access to candidates will be greatest (more republican candidates visiting) and we have the staff and program experience to seize this opportunity.
- Organize Regional Democracy Teams: Organizing clubs on college campuses throughout NH for greater grassroots involvement of youth activists, and/or establishing a Regional Democracy Team specifically for youth. Responsibilities include building relationships with college students and/or youth activists, providing resources and education as-needed, organizing youth team actions, and more. This will support organizing our Regional Democracy Teams; six volunteer groups who collaborate on action across NH
- Commitment to nonpartisan relationship building, communications, and advocacy
- Ability to work independently and collaboratively, set own schedule, meet deadlines, and be flexible as tasks and priorities can change quickly
- Verbal/written communication skills
- Experience with Microsoft and/or Google suites, or ability to learn
Opportunities for skill-building can also be expanded, based on interests, beyond these responsibilities to include fundraising, and/or research work.
Part-time, paid position through the 2024 General Election with flexible hours and potential for some remote work. Travel and project expenses reimbursed by Open Democracy.
