- Internet for our towns
- Clean water we can drink
- Education for our kids

It's time our leaders stepped up and built communities that will flourish for generations to come. That's why West Virginia New Jobs Coalition is organizing to pass the Build Back Better Act, a piece of legislation that would create 30,000+ new jobs in West Virginia!

Canvassers will meet daily with staff for training and support, and will be responsible knocking on doors to move voters to take action associated with our primary goal: putting pressure on members of Congress to pass the Build Back Better Act.

Successful applicants will be comfortable with public speaking, as well as working on your feet! Canvassing requires an ability to walk around and speak with strangers constantly. Our shifts are M-F, 1:30-5:30pm, and you'll need to be available for a minimum of two shifts per week!

If you are passionate about strengthening our state, bring jobs back to West Virginia, and making our politicians work for US, please apply!
