Regional Data & Targeting Coordinator

Website Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC)

Sole organization dedicated to electing Democrats to statehouses

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the sole organization and campaign committee dedicated to recruiting, training, and electing Democrats to state legislatures across the country. We provide candidates, caucus partners, and key stakeholders with the resources, field support, and data necessary to run smart, winning campaigns, with the ultimate goal of building Democratic power at the state level.

Building up Democratic power in the states is more important than ever. With right-wing radicals proliferating state legislatures across the country and leading insurrections against our fundamental values, our Democracy is on the line.

The DLCC compensates employees competitively and provides a very generous benefits package. Our flexible work arrangements and significant amounts of time off aim to support work-life balance when staff may be asked to work outside of business hours during periods of peak work. We’re dedicated to treating one another with respect in the workplace, and prioritizing racial equity and inclusion (REI) in our work with one another as well as with our stakeholders.
