Do Something That Matters.

Resistance Labs is a peer to peer texting movement management service. In Alabama’s special election we helped the NAACP have conversations with 163,000 black or female unregistered voters. We’ve sent over 7 million texts for hundreds of grassroots groups in red and rural areas in 46 states.

Every dollar of revenue brought in as consultants supports our efforts to rebuild the Democratic Party and movement organizations from the ground up. Our programs are Contest Every Race, an effort to recruit rural down ballot candidates and Rapid Resist, an earned media and community organizing effort targeting key Republicans.

DIRECTOR OF IMPACT & FUNDRAISING

We’re funded by a few dozen major donors and hundreds of small donors. Until now, these relationships have all been managed by the founder. Your job will be to steward these relationships and build new ones with potential key supporters.

You are an obsessive and strategic networker and have a talent for knowing just how to and when to ask for meetings with powerful people. You have experience thinking at high levels about how to measure impact in the political advocacy and electoral space. You are excellent at managing your seniors’ time and pushing a project forward in a chaotic context.
