Temporary, full time through approximately November 3, 2020
Missouri Jobs with Justice Voter Action (MO JwJ) is a coalition of labor, religious, student and community activists and
organizations committed to protecting the basic human rights of all people. MO JwJ Voter Action addresses the root
causes of poverty while working for an economic base that benefits the entire community. We believe that the fate of
labor unions and the communities in which their members live are tightly bound together. We work in partnership with
central labor councils, local unions, civil rights organizations, students, community, and faith-based organizations in
mobilizing direct actions for social and economic justice for all people, including the right to organize a union, rebuilding
the social safety net, living wages, health care, and equal treatment for all. MO JwJ Voter Action is an equal
opportunity, affirmative action employer. We seek a diverse pool of volunteers and applicants for all opportunities and
responsibilities within the organization – in particular with respect to women, people of color, the LGBTQIA community,
immigrants, and people of all ages.
The Position: Canvasser
Canvassers will work closely with the Regional Field Manager to register and ID Voters in your region. We will be testing
messages for the No on 3 campaign. You will need to make 5-8 contacts an hour and collect 10-15 pledge cards a shift.
In response to the overwhelming passage of CLEAN Missouri in 2018, members of the legislature have sent to the
November ballot a politician protection plan disguised as an ethics package. Amendment 3 would enshrine the right to
gerrymander in our constitution, as well as make Missouri the only state in the country that does not count all of our
residents for political representation. These changes are racist both in origin and in impact.

you will make 5-8 contacts an hour and collect 10-15 pledge cards a shift. Each shift is 7 hours.
