MoveOn is a people-powered force for progress. We wield independent political power by bringing millions together to take action to create a country with a place of honor and dignity for everyone—where all are welcome, we take care of one another, and where everyone is set up to thrive.

For more than a generation, MoveOn has been a bulwark against the radical right and has channeled millions of voices to end wars, protect democracy, and advance justice for all. We’ve built political power for progressive change through mobilizing the left to Democrats so that we can advance our vision of an America for all.

MoveOn is the largest multi-issue digital first political campaigning organization in the country. We drive rapid-response campaigns at scale on a multitude of key issues at high-impact moments while building sustainable campaigns that resonate and grow over time. Whether its democracy, health care, foreign policy, economic justice, immigration or otherwise, MoveOn provides our members with timely ways to take action for change.

The stakes of the 2024 election couldn’t be higher. Our goal in 2024 is to re-elect President Biden and VP Harris, protect the Senate, and secure a Democratic majority in the House. To do this, we’ve identified a subset of voters who can deliver a margin of victory in key states and districts across the country with a voter contact plan that aims to reach individual voters 3 or more times before Election Day with a combination of handwritten postcards, phone calls, and door to door outreach.

With millions of members nationwide and a 25-year track record of winning electoral and progressive issue campaigns, MoveOn is uniquely positioned to persuade and turnout surge voters to the polls in November.

Unlike most traditional campaigns, we’re not running a paid canvass. We’re building a small but nimble team of organizers who will support hundreds of volunteers across the country to write dozens of thousands of postcards, knock on hundreds of thousands of doors, and make millions of calls to voters in a scaled, distributed organizing program leveraging traditional and relational organizing to swing the election.


Participate in volunteer monthly calls, weekly staff calls, and hold regular 1:1’s with MoveOn members to build relationships and identify leaders for recruitment purposes.
Recruit new leaders and develop their confidence to launch voter contact events from their home (postcard writing parties, phonebanks, door to door canvasses).
Develop training materials and facilitate engaging, fun trainings to build leaders’ confidence to launch events.
Organize “barnstorm” organizing tours throughout target states—hosting community meetings to rally volunteers, build community, and recruit and train leaders and volunteers. You’ll travel portions of your region building volunteer programs in target areas.
Organize volunteer-run “distributed” canvasses and phonebanks. Recruit, train, coach, and support volunteer canvass leaders to lead distributed days of action and to take responsibility for voter contacts in their region. They’ll lead the events, not you; you’ll train and support them.
Manage and report data impeccably using NGP VAN.
Prepare canvassing turf with and for volunteers as needed.
Build community through social events, voter contact events, and monthly community calls.
Responsible for meeting all field goals and deadlines.
