Times are tough and if you have what it takes, there is a great position with Moms Demand/Everytown.
The Deputy National Organizing Director is an experienced senior strategist who creates and oversees field and volunteer organizing campaigns, electoral work, ballot initiatives, work with impacted communities, whatever it takes to move states and eventually the federal government forward on gun violence prevention legislation. This position oversees organizing work in a section of the country, creating and implementing a vision for organizing efforts that build our power for the long-term while winning short term victories. Everytown seeks an individual who can develop leaders and build movement building strategies.
And what will you do?
“…this position (Deputy National Organizing Director) is keeping their eye on the long game, assessing opportunities and challenges, working alongside the policy staff to push gun violence prevention legislation and set the NRA back on their heels.
My oh my! And where is this position to be filled? Next door to the NRA in Virginia? Nope: L.A. San Francisco or Chicago….but wait, aren’t those locations already pacified and living under the benefits of strict Gun Control? Taking coals to Newcastle does not seem a good expenditure of Bloomberg’s monies.
And then this was interesting:
Everytown for Gun Safety is the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than 3 million supporters and more than 40,000 donors.
That is barely breaking a million of unpaid followers. And if we add Moms Demand…
Maybe a bit more than a million and a half? And that is being generous and say that there are no people following one group that follows the other. And the Pro Gun people like myself that are on their lists to keep track of them.
And only 40,000 serious enough to send donations?
But it is well-known that Moms/Everytown are “flexible” when it comes to count their own heads.
Anyway, go ahead and send your resume and let us know how it goes. At least you won’t have a bouncing check at the end of the month.
