HyeCount is hiring full-time campaign organizers for its 2020 Census campaign in Los Angeles County.
The Constitutionally-mandated census carries significant political, economic, and social repercussions from deciding the number of seats for each state in the U.S. House of Representatives to allocating close to $700 billion in federal funds for housing, education, healthcare, etc. to state and local governments, as well as providing grants to community-based organizations.
In order to secure this crucial funding for our community programs, schools, and centers, the HyeCount has partnered with Census2020 to ensure a complete count of the Armenian-American community through a public education campaign urging community members to identify themselves as Armenian in the Census.
Campaign organizers will be tasked with educating members of the Armenian-American community on the importance of identifying as ‘Armenian’ in the Census so as to maximize the collective voice of our community.These positions will report to two project coordinators. Campaign organizers will be required to work six days a week (and are free to choose which day they take off), and six-hour days.
