Posted on May 3, 2022


Steven Olikara is a proud Wisconsinite, the son of Indian immigrants, a musician, and a political reform leader running for the U.S. Senate. He believes that for too long, powerful forces have divided us against each other and left our most vulnerable communities behind. We are building a new, more inclusive, compassionate, and honest form of politics, one that champions dignity and opportunity for all.

The team is welcoming volunteers and interns to work with Olikara for Senate campaign leadership to mobilize community members across Wisconsin for one of the most important elections in 2022. There are volunteer opportunities in field organizing, finance & operations, and communications. Interns need to be able to provide between 5-20 hours per week, remote or in-person, and applicants should indicate their area of interest:
● Field Interns/Volunteers will participate in phone banking, digital organizing, canvassing, and data management. There will also be opportunities to gain experience in community and relational organizing.
● Finance & Operations Interns/Volunteers will conduct research, data management, online outreach and engagement, and support in event coordination. There will be opportunities to be trained in fundraising, donor prospecting, and candidate call time.
● Communications Interns/Volunteers will provide editing and some limited drafting support on public and private campaign correspondence, policy documents, press outreach, and social media channels. There will also be creative opportunities for those looking for experience in design, emerging social media, and video editing.

Team Olikara trains all staff, interns, and volunteers on effective organizing strategies. Interns will develop their work portfolio with campaign leadership to ensure it provides desired professional development and experiences.
