Feingold Hiring For His Patriots Corps

Sen. Russ Feingold's Progressive Patriots Fund is hiring people to be part of Patriots Corps. In 2006, this program trained organizers and sent them to work in campaigns across the nation (include for Bruce Braley's campaign in Iowa's 1st district).

Senator Feingold has long believed that a strong grassroots field program is the key to electoral victory. As such, Senator Feingold started the Patriot Corps in 2006 as a way to support important races across the nation. In the lead up to the 2008 election, Senator Feingold will again be hiring, training and sending field staff to key races across the country.

We're looking for at least 20 energetic, personable activists from across the country to participate in our second Patriot Corps program. Once chosen, Patriot Corps members will participate in an extensive, multi-day training program in Milwaukee, WI the first week of September. This training will focus on volunteer recruitment, organizing a canvas, running a phone bank, working with local activists, advanced GOTV training, and staffing a candidate. Patriot Corps members will then be placed on targeted campaigns across the country for the last two months leading up to the election.

While we’re looking for organizers with experience, we’re also hoping to hire activists with a willingness to work hard to bring victory home this fall.

For more information or to apply for the Patriots Corps Program, please contact Paula Zellner at or 715-735-7811. All applications must be submitted by Friday, July 25th.
