Volunteer Opportunity with Stipend

Maricopa County Democratic Party


Volunteer Opportunity with Stipend

The Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) is building the grassroots power to create game changing results in Arizona. As a member of MCDP's Hope Corps program, you will on the ground, making a difference in local communities by registering new voters and signing up voters to vote by mail. Through door-to-door, neighbor-to-neighbor organizing, you will be a part of a team creating a coordinated effort that can change the electorate and win races up and down the ticket.

Four great reasons to work for the MCDP Hope Corps Program in 2011:

• Do your part to empower local communities and register new voters.

• Learn the skills to organize locally while working directly in neighborhoods across the valley.

• Train the next generation of volunteer leadership that will send America's Worst Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, into retirement.

• Lay the foundation for President Obama in 2012.

Arizona is a diverse and dynamic state, and this year's municipal races will be a stepping stone towards turning Arizona blue in 2012. Democrats can win in this traditionally red state by turning out Maricopa County with a concentrated door-to-door effort. We are building an empowered organization that will focus on targeted voter registration, party identification, and voter turnout. It is hard work, but Maricopa County is the key to changing Arizona.
