Jobs

Oklahoma Policy Institute seeks to hire two part-time field organizers ­– one for the southeast and one for the southwest region of the state ­– to support the work of our grassroots advocacy citizen coalition, Together Oklahoma (TOK).

TOK is a grassroots education and advocacy group connecting Oklahoma values to state budget priorities. Field organizers will bring awareness of TOK priority issues to their dedicated region with a focus on tax and budget issues, health care, economic security, and criminal justice. Organizers will work to expand our membership base, support our volunteer leaders, and equip and train individuals for effective advocacy. Organizers will develop local outreach strategies and convey our policy proposals throughout their region in an engaging and empowering way. Click here to read the full job description.
