About the Organization:

The People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, focused on bringing Americans together to find common ground around nonpartisan policy reforms. Our organization embraces diversity and is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.

The People is a nonpartisan organization, and as such is looking for candidates who are able to work directly and respectfully with people from across the political spectrum without bias. 

About the Role:
