Will you join me?

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

My name is Rufus and I'm a MoveOn volunteer Regional Coordinator based in Rockford, IL.

As a Regional Coordinator, I've guided the Council in Rockford to get consistent local media attention on issues ranging from the public option in health care to corporate influence in Washington. I've supported leaders in Oklahoma—one of the reddest states in the country—to help build four MoveOn groups there. And I've worked with Council members in Illinois and Oklahoma to take on more leadership and step up as Regional Coordinators with their own teams of local leaders. 

Being a Regional Coordinator has allowed me to walk the walk of my political convictions. I can actively organize others for the progressive cause instead of complaining about the state of our country.

That's why I want to invite you to apply for the Regional Organizer Academy, a six-week organizer training program that you can participate in from the comfort of your home. You'll get the skills and experience to join the team and you'll be part of a doubling of our national Regional Coordinator team—so we can build more local groups and have more impact around the country. 

Do you have what it takes to be a MoveOn Regional Coordinator? Click here to apply:

If you're accepted into the Regional Organizing Academy, you will:

  • Develop and deepen campaign-building skills, hold members of Congress accountable by mobilizing your community, and strengthen the progressive movement. You will be learning in a "virtual" training center with support from MoveOn Field Organizers and Regional Coordinators.
  • Recruit, develop, and support over the phone your own teams of local organizers to fight to create jobs and a clean-energy economy, and in defense of the Other 98% of us without big corporate lobbyists in Washington.

I truly love the work I get to do as a Regional Coordinator—it gives me great satisfaction working with others to make the change we believe in happen. I hope you take some time today to apply to join me and the Regional Coordinator team as we work to grow a more powerful progressive movement!
