On April 29th, 2017, we're doing it again. As a culmination of the 100 Days Mobilization, we will gather together to resist the Trump Administration's attacks on our planet and communities. Young people have a crucial role to play in this march. PCM will serve as a huge opportunity to build relationships, develop youth leadership, recruit new folks from our communities, bring them to the mobilization, and engage them in our local campaigns.
Signing up on this form means you may be interested in being a Campus or Regional Lead for the PCM. As a youth recruitment leader, you’ll be responsible for organizing people to come to DC and be part of a team working to build a powerful youth mobilization. The recruitment team is organized in a snowflake structure with campus or city leads being supported by regional/state leads, who in turn are supported by national leads. National leads will make sure you have the resources and training you need to succeed, including learning recruitment and outreach skills, building relationships with other campus or state leads, actually getting your people to DC, and tactics for absorbing folks back into local organizing after the march. This is all about supporting people on campuses and in communities to do the best recruitment and organizing they can!
