Job Description

(To download this as a Word document, click here.) San Francisco Rising (SFR) is an alliance of eight multi-racial, grassroots organizations that are working for justice for low-income San Francisco residents. SFR is currently seeking an individual to serve as Team Leader, with responsibilities including training, managing and coaching our 10 person outreach team during a 3 week phone banking and canvassing operation.

We are also hiring over 10 Outreach Workers — job description here.
