Delegate Sally Hudson seeks Field Organizers to join her campaign for Virginia’s newly-drawn 11th Senate District. Field Organizer is a full-time, in-person role based in the Charlottesville metro area, a progressive region in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

Core Duties

The Field Organizers will:

– knock on doors to persuade voters and turn out supporters

– recruit, train, and manage volunteers to participate in direct voter contact

– be agile in adapting to the campaign’s needs and technologies as they develop

Prior paid or volunteer organizing experience is a plus but not necessary. Applicants with experience working in (a) Virginia, (b) competitive primaries, or (c) state and local races will be especially welcome. A down-ballot primary in a tight-knit community can be a very different race than a frontline Congressional general election.

Location and Schedule

– Start date is flexible. We aim to have new hires in Charlottesville full-time in February 2023.

– The race has a competitive primary on June 20, 2023. We welcome applicants who may wish to work on the primary campaign before pursuing other opportunities during the general election cycle.


– Starting salary range is $3500 – $4000 per month.

– Supporter housing is available.

– This position will be eligible for a $300 monthly reimbursement for health insurance expenses, if desired.
