RepresentUs is hiring a national campaign manager to oversee anti-gerrymandering campaigns in 6-10 states across the country throughout 2021. The 2021 state campaigns will educate the public on the redistricting process, provide opportunities for citizen voices to participate in the debate, and — most importantly — boldly hold legislators accountable to create the fairest maps possible.

Passion for RepresentUs’ mission to make America work for everyone, not just the powerful and well-connected, is essential.
