NARAL Pro-Choice California is seeking an Organizer for Southern California, based in Orange County or Los Angeles, to identify, train, and support volunteers and volunteer leaders to move decisionmakers, elect pro-choice candidates, and win campaigns.
As the nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group, NARAL Pro-Choice America is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans, including abortion access. Along with our 2.3 million member activists from all 50 states and network of state affiliates, NARAL works to guarantee that each woman has access to the full range of reproductive freedoms.
We are at a historic moment in which the anti-choice movement is one step away from overturning or gutting Roe, but also in which we have major opportunities to advance abortion rights in America by mobilizing the 7 in 10 Americans who support access to abortion. NARAL is working to leverage the power of our 2.3 million members to achieve legislative and political victories to protect and expand reproductive freedom. To accomplish these goals, NARAL is prioritizing work to build even more grassroots power and scale our organizing by creating new volunteer structures and opportunities for deeper member engagement. The Regional Organizer is a key player in building a network of highly activated volunteers and volunteer leaders who partner with each other and with NARAL in achieving campaign wins.
At NARAL, we don’t operate or litigate; we organize and mobilize. Working together, we push our friends to be bolder, lift up the champions fighting with us on the front line for true reproductive freedom, and we shine a spotlight of accountability on bad actors that work to impose their ideological agenda on others.

The Southern California Organizer will work towards legislative and electoral priorities, with the 2020 elections as a critical near term focus.

The Southern California Organizer will prioritize recruiting, mentoring, training, and supporting NARAL volunteer leaders to support and possibly establish self-sustaining “Action Councils” — all-volunteer leaders’ groups committed to working on NARAL priority campaigns by, for example, running events, recruiting for rallies, and engaging in rapid response. The Southern California Organizer will support Action Council leaders in creating and executing organizing plans to achieve campaign goals; work to identify and support individual volunteer leaders and volunteers where it’s not possible to set up self-sustaining Action Councils; and regularly work to identify and recruit prospective volunteers and volunteer leaders through a variety of means.
