Posted: Feb 2022

Job Title: Phone Banker

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund (CCI Action) is a grassroots, member-led organization that builds the power of everyday people to win social, economic, racial and environmental justice for all. We fundamentally believe that everyday people can be a powerful force for justice and that people most directly impacted by an issue should be in the driver’s seat – making decisions and taking leadership roles. We get things done on tough issues by being strategic, persistent, and by dealing directly with decision-makers.

Movement Politics – Big social change always comes from the ground up, not the top down. It comes from a mass-based, people-power movement. We use elections to challenge the establishment, change business-as-usual politics, build our power and influence, and advance our top-tier issue campaigns. We want to elect people from our ranks to public office – people who think like us, act like us. And people who are willing to co-govern with us once they’re elected.

CCI Action is hiring contractors leading up to the 2022 primary election. We are looking for individuals who work hard and have a passion for social, economic, racial and environmental justice.

Contractors will have conversations with voters about political issues impacting our lives and bring them into our work by turning people out to our actions and events, and to the June 7th 2022 primary election. Contractors will use a predictive dialer to meet Iowa CCI Action’s direct voter contact goals.

Contractors will generally work 4 shifts per week—averaging the equivalent of 20 hours per week, 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Monday-Friday, in this 10-week program. CCI can work with applicants to adjust hours within reason to accommodate other obligations.
