DIGITAL ORGANIZER

Job Title: Digital Organizer  

Reports To: Digital Director 

 

About the position: 

Digital Organizers will report to the Digital Director and help execute an advocacy / education campaign based around building a statewide relational organizing outreach program. Outreach will focus on targeted outreach to key persuasion universes, crowd building for our schedule of virtual events and collecting health care stories from North Carolinians to help us amplify our key messages. We are looking for someone who is eager to affect change, hard-working, and not afraid to try new strategies and tactics. We’re a fast-moving place with ambitious goals, so the right person for the job is not afraid of taking on new opportunities to move people to action and quickly responding to an ever-changing news cycle.

  • Draft compelling social media, email, web, and/or peer-to-peer SMS copy. 

  • Work in relational organizing tools daily to work on both persuasion and story collection.

    • Persuasion: Encouraging folks to share our message with their friends and family. Start with low bar asks to share our posts on social media, build to higher asks like hosting a virtual event themselves. 

    • Story collection: Contact targeted lists of North Carolinians to collect health care stories for amplification. Organizers would be expected to develop personal relationships with storytellers and regularly check in with them to encourage the likelihood that they move up the ladder of engagement.
