2019 Summer Grassroots Organizing Fellowship

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is recruiting Summer Grassroots Organizing Fellows to lead movement-building outreach efforts into targeted communities across the state. PPAO is the statewide political voice for Planned Parenthood’s two affiliates in Oregon and for reproductive health care. PPAO defends the Planned Parenthood mission by advocating for public policy that will enhance and protect reproductive health care; by building support and accountability among our elected officials in Oregon; and by engaging and motivating the public. Our Fellows are integral in our efforts to protect and expand the critical healthcare services that Planned Parenthood provides: family planning, lifesaving cancer treatments, and safe and legal abortion. At a time when many states are struggling to maintain a hold on access and funding, and when our access to reproductive health care is under consistent federal attack, Oregon is leading the way by safeguarding access to reproductive health care.

With the 2020 campaign cycle just around the corner, this summer will lay a critical foundation for building relationships with Planned Parenthood supporters and voters across Oregon. Fellows will be tasked with extensive community outreach, education and training with direct staff support to develop and strengthen their community organizing skills. PPAO is also deeply invested in the implementation of Oregon’s comprehensive sex education policy. Fellows will revitalize our Health Center Advocacy Program as an avenue to garner support and patient advocates’ stories about access (or lack thereof) to sex education.

This fellowship will provide real-world experience and valuable résumé-building skills in many aspects of political and community engagement work including: advocacy, supporter outreach, voter contact and mobilization, volunteer recruitment and management, volunteer leadership training, fund raising and data management. Fellows must be able to commit to 12-15 hours a week, primarily weeknights, and some weekday and weekend shifts. Fellows are eligible to receive college credit and a $300 stipend. This fellowship is offered in Eugene and Portland as a 3-month opportunity from July to September 2019. Longer terms may be available.

This position is offered in both Portland and Eugene. To apply, please submit a cover letter and résumé to [email protected] (Portland) or [email protected] (Eugene) no later than Friday, May 24th, 2019. Applications will be reviewed as they are received with rolling interviews scheduled.

In 2018, an estimated 31% of eligible young people voted in the midterm elections. In order to maintain the movement for access to reproductive rights across the country, we must do our part by engaging young and underrepresented voters leading up to the 2020 election cycle. The fall fellowship program will focus on youth and campus organizing, volunteer and leadership cultivation, and fund raising for Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon. Fellows will be integral to organizing and facilitating a statewide training for new Planned Parenthood supporters to build our grassroots power. Fellows will also carry out our annual PAC drive fundraising plan.
