Associate Director of Partner Data and Analytics – Win Justice

Overview:
The 2016 election was a wake-up call for progressive Americans and the organizations that work to protect their values. To make our vision for this country a reality, we must prove to new, infrequent, swing, and drop-off voters that the change they want in their own lives can be achieved through political participation.

The Center for Community Change Action, Color of Change PAC, Planned Parenthood Votes, and Service Employees International Union, along with our state-level affiliates, partners, and political committees – have joined together to form a groundbreaking coalition to build lasting power and win key elections in battleground states in 2018. The strength of our collaboration is in our organizations’ deep capacity on the ground, brand strength, positive vision and values, history of collaboration and trust, and track record of engaging voters at scale. Our campaign will reach 2.5 million voters in Florida, Michigan, and Nevada, and change the face of the electorate from the ground up by mobilizing low- and mid-propensity voters of color, women, young people, and union supporters in Florida, Michigan, and Nevada. Each state program will be designed to motivate and deliver drop-off voters who do not reliably vote during non-presidential elections.

We are building fully integrated plans in each state — from creating the initial voter universe to testing and scaling what we see working — while leveraging the unique strengths of each organization. Our program will be fully coordinated with the America Votes program and all data will live in the VAN — the platform used by progressive organizations that ensures integration and use of best practices in compliance, digital, field work, and organizing.
