Various: Corporate Accountability International seeks Regional Campaign Organizer

21 Mar
Since 1977, Corporate Accountability International has successfully challenged corporations like Nestlé, General Electric, and Philip Morris to halt abusive practices that threaten human rights, public health, the environment and our democracy.
The organization is expanding—and leading campaigns challenging some of the world’s most powerful industries, including food and agriculture, water, and big tobacco. Think Outside the Bottle exposes the truth behind bottled water marketing and defends the human right to water in the face of increasing corporate control. Value [the] Meal challenges the fast food industry to stop driving an epidemic of diet-related disease, and our campaign Challenging Big Tobacco protects the first-ever corporate accountability treaty from tobacco industry interference.
Corporate Accountability International is seeking experienced organizers to build a nationwide network of Action Committees, made up of and led by members and activists committed to taking on corporate power. Join our 2 year program to recruit and mobilize the long-term political base and power needed to wage and win our corporate campaigns. Regional Campaign Organizers will start with a classroom training at Campaign Headquarters in Boston, followed by an 8 week field training in the Bay Area. Regional Campaign Organizers will then receive field assignments in multiple cities across the country, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, New Haven, Portland OR, San Francisco, or Seattle.

• Run signature gathering actions to find potential volunteers.
• Regularly set and hold a high volume of one-on-one meetings to recruit activists and raise funds.
• Develop leadership and strategic planning skills of Action Committee leaders to recruit and mobilize activists, wage direct pressure campaigns, build strong coalitions, and conduct effective media outreach to expose and challenge corporate abuses.
• Keep accurate and up-to-date files, records, and systems to build capacity for all our campaigns.
• Participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising and campaign activities.
• Develop a high skill level in all areas of work listed above.
