#HouVotes Campaign Organizer

Houston Justice Coalition (HJC), a non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization, is hiring an ORGANIZER for the 2018 election cycle to work 9 weeks leading up to Election Day. Limited experience is acceptable as training will be provided. Our campaign has the ambitious goal to register 5,000 eligible voters in Houston.
