OPAWL is a grassroots membership-based community that organizes for social justice and elevates the voices, visibility, and progressive leadership of Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and nonbinary people in Ohio. By co-creating an organized and intersectional feminist-led community, we are building collective power. Our primary strategies for building power are through community building, art and storytelling, political education, and organizing campaigns. We are looking for a Voter Engagement Organizer to help coordinate our civic and voter engagement programs, including issue-based campaigns like Immigrant Justice and Reproductive Justice.
The Voter Engagement Organizer position is an opportunity for a strategic and authentic relationship-builder to build collective power in the AAPI community, develop grassroots intersectional feminist leadership, and move community members to take action for social justice and liberation. The ideal candidate is resourceful, reliable, and a highly collaborative team player. The candidate will possess strong interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate and guide people to take action. We are seeking an individual who can work independently on projects as well as refine processes to make them run smoothly. Due to the dynamic nature of our work, the candidate must be able to manage multiple priorities. We are seeking a candidate who will conduct work through the lens of racial justice, equity, and inclusion to advance equitable democracy for all Ohioans. The ideal candidate demonstrates the ability to work with a wide range of volunteers and organizational members within our coalition.
