California used to have some of the best K-12 schools in the country and the UC system was the "gold standard" for public universities. But today many school districts can no longer afford to pay for physical education, music or art. At the college level more and more classes are being cut every year and tuition has increased by 300% in just ten years. We have to stop shortchanging public education!

Although we just had a great victory in passing Proposition 30, that only stopped new education cuts. To truly save our schools we must reform Prop. 13. Large corporations are exploiting loopholes in Prop 13 to avoid paying their fair share of property taxes. These corporate tax cheaters are increasing the burden on average homeowners and robbing our schools of desperately needed funding. We are currently hiring Field Canvassers to build support to reform Proposition 13 which would restore $2 billion of funding for public education. Now is our chance to save our schools so everyone in California can have access to a good education, not just the privileged few.

Evolve a group of professional grassroots organizers who work on local progressive campaigns. We believe in the power of community organizing and in treating our staff as partners in the struggle for a better world. Our past work includes passing Prop. 30, working to repeal Prop. 8, preserving California's open spaces, protecting and expanding health care, and working to elect local progressive candidates. We believe in face to face community outreach and the power of holding politicians accountable to the communities they serve! Our fundraising activists fight for real solutions to California's most pressing problems.

Hours: Monday-Tuesday 1pm-9pm, Wednesday-Friday 9-5. Three day minimum commitment. Advancement/management opportunities available! We offer paid vacation, sick time, and fully paid health care.
