Stand for Children is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability.
About the Campaign
The Invest in Education Act creates a dedicated funding source to keep great teachers in Arizona classrooms and give our students the one-on-one attention they need to be successful. Our politicians have led us on a 28-year spree of tax cuts that took resources away from public schools and resulted in the teacher shortage crisis we face today, classrooms with outdated textbooks and technology, too many students, and deteriorating facilities.
Your role stands at the intersection of organizing and the fight to change the odds for low-income children and families. Stand for Children seeks a dynamic and hard-working Electoral Northern Arizona Organizer to empower and mobilize our grassroots stakeholders to take state action in support of students. The Northern Arizona Organizer will contribute to a national effort to take our organizing to the next level of scale and impact. The Northern Arizona Organizer will ensure we have a solid ongoing presence in targeted locations to impact state policy decisions and elections and, where strategic to our state work, local policy decisions and elections. This role will be supporting Stand for Children’s efforts on various ballot initiatives and legislative elections.
