WORK WITH US
Rising Voices of Asian American Families, (RVAAF) a project of Progress Michigan Education Fund, and Michigan Asian American Progressives, (MAAP) a project of Progress Michigan, together are seeking to hire a Digital Organizer (DO) whose time will be split between RVAAF and MAAP.
A DO is integral to identifying our communities and expanding our organizing efforts given the fact that current data significantly undercounts and misidentifies many Asian Americans. A DO will be able to support our data collection and scrubbing work as well as enabling us to organize and identify new research opportunities for the state in the future.
POSITION SUMMARY: The DO will build relationships in and beyond SE MI through a mixture of traditional and digital organizing that’ll emphasize text and social media follow-ups. Much of Rising Voices’ and MAAP’s work is focused on communities with a high percentage of limited-English proficient speakers and those who have not been targeted in past civic engagement efforts.
POSITION SUMMARY: This position will be responsible for managing and representing Michigan Asian American Progressives and Rising Voices of Asian American Families political and policy programs a the local, state and federal level. The Political Director will be expected to do a wide variety of membership engagement including one on ones, on-going membership meetings, full engagement plan for activists, leadership development, and other tactics geared towards building a thriving base.
