6. We believe that good organizers set clear expectations and follow through on commitments. We have worked hard to make this learning and action opportunity available to the widest range of people of different backgrounds. Here are the expectations for Resist & Win Leaders. You must be able to meet these expectations in order to submit your application and be considered for the program.
Participation and Time Commitment: I am available July 8-Aug 8 for a virtual training program and to lead an action in my community during this time period. I understand I will receive training and support! I can commit to volunteer an average of 3-5 hours per week from July 8-Aug 8 (four weeks), and approximately 5 hours per week from Labor Day to Election Day. (Some people may choose to volunteer full-time close to Election Day!)
Volunteer Role with Scholarships Available: I understand that this is a volunteer role. I understand that some scholarships are available and that I will have the opportunity to apply for them. I understand that I may apply for a scholarship to attend the National Grassroots Leadership Summit.
Communication Access: I have or can get regular access to a smartphone or computer with internet access and enough data for about 90 minutes of video each week to complete the weekly assignments. I can also be reached by phone.
Resist & Win Vision Statement: I believe that we can build a country with room for all of us, with an economy that works for all of us, that welcomes refugees and immigrants, that takes action to address climate change, that makes it easier, not harder, to vote, that values Black lives, and that stands against sexism, racism, and Islamophobia. I share a commitment to nonviolent action to achieve this vision.
