It is not very often that an opportunity to change the tides of history presents itself. That is why the upcoming gubernatorial election matters, and you can be a part of the movement this fall to help us elect a governor that believes that where you start should never determine how far you can go! Apply to be a part of the fall fellowship program, and help construct a Texas we can all be proud of.
APPLY TO BE A FELLOW
THE FALL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Wendy Davis Fall Fellows are a crucial part of the campaign’s field program. The goal of the fellowship is to train a new generation of organizers and leaders to help contact voters, recruit volunteers, and help build neighborhood teams that will help turn out the vote in November. Fall Fellows work directly with field organizers to plan and participate in phone banks, blockwalks, voter registration drives, and team planning meetings. Fall Fellows will work with their region to help organize and execute the regional Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) training for volunteer leaders in November. They will also play an essential role in the execution of the four-day GOTV effort leading into Election Day.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Fall Fellows must be committed to building an energetic volunteer infrastructure to elect Wendy Davis. Fellows must also show willingness to learn new organizing skills and tools to help build and support the field program. Fellows must enjoy working in diverse teams, taking initiative, being solution-oriented, and having a great passion for volunteer-driven community organizing. Fellows are expected to actively participate in phone banks, blockwalks, voter registration drives, and/or volunteer-led meetings. In October and November, Fellows are expected to help with the Early Vote in Person and GOTV programs.
THE SELECTION PROCESS
Candidates should submit an online application. Ideal applicants will be invited for an interview. As part of the application process, applicants may be asked to participate in a volunteer action event such as a phone bank, blockwalk, and/or neighborhood team meeting. All accepted Fellows are expected to attend a regional training on Saturday, September 6th.
