The opportunity

  • Movement Voter Project’s sister entity, Movement Voter PAC, is raising funds for youth- & BIPOC-led grassroots groups organizing and turning out the vote in the most critical states & districts.
  • To fund this work, volunteers are hosting Virtual House Parties across the country.
  • These events have raised millions of dollars that will fund organizing & turnout efforts for years.
  • Each event requires a volunteer “Zoom Manager” to screen share, mute participants, etc.
  • With enough Zoom Managers, we’ll be able to organize hundreds of these volunteer-led events.
  • How will we meet this growing need and take this to scale? That’s where you come in!
