Fair Wisconsin is seeking Campus Organizers of all fields of study for the Fall Semester
Contact Person: Jean Wennlund, firstname.lastname@example.org
Location: 122 State St, Suite 500, Madison, WI 53703
Fair Wisconsin is a statewide organization dedicated to advancing and protecting the
civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and families.
We carry out this mission through education, legislative advocacy, grassroots
organizing, coalition-building and electoral involvement. These efforts are designed to
educate the general voting public, sensitize the media, promote a politically active and
effective organizational membership, and better inform policy makers on issues of
concern to our members.
Campus organizers are an integral part of Wisconsin’s statewide advocacy
organization, especially those organizers working outside of Madison where it is vital
that we keep our supporters active and connected. Currently our only office is in
Madison; interns residing outside of Madison will work in their own communities and will stay in contact with Fair Wisconsin staff via regular online and phone communications.
Tasks and responsibilities vary depending on applicant’s interests and skills but may
include: helping to organize Students for a Fair Wisconsin, voter education and
canvassing, creating outreach materials, organizing visibility campaigns such as
chalking and lit distribution, recruiting and training new members and volunteers, and
community outreach and education.
Experience and Qualifications: Applicants should have an interest in LGBT equality,
legislative affairs, organizing for social change, and policy. Ability to organize, mobilize, and energize students and community members is a plus, however we will work with you to help develop these skills if you have no previous community organizing experience.
To Apply: Please send a resume and brief cover letter stating why you would like to
work with Fair Wisconsin and what you think you can contribute to the Fair Wisconsin
team to Jean Wennlund at email@example.com. Applications are due
Friday, July 11th, 2008.
The expected commitment is 35-40 hours per week on average, however there is
flexibility and we will work with you to accommodate your schedule. All campus
organizer positions are paid and can count as class credit if applicable.
