We’re looking for people to join our exciting campaign advancing economic, racial and environmental justice in East Oakland. We are building a team of social justice advocates to educate and mobilize residents around the 2020 Census. An accurate Census count means: access to affordable housing, lunches for kids, funding for health centers, and fair political representation.

If you or someone you know are self-motivated, reliable, and a team player with a positive attitude, and you are interested in racial, economic and environmental justice, then Oakland Rising is the place for you!

Join our team of Outreach Workers who will speak to community members at the door and over the phone this fall about the importance of filling out the 2020 Census. Our community counts on us, and one thing we can do to help our families and neighbors is join together to fill out the Census.

Please complete the online application by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4. If you have any questions or need assistance with the application process, please contact Laneisha Butler at [email protected] or 510-261-2600.

CAMPAIGN DATES: Sundays – Thursdays, Oct. 20 to Nov. 14

PAY: $18/hour; 1 meal will be provided each workday

This is a part-time (5 hrs/day) temporary job.
