Sign up to volunteer with Jan in 2022!

The election is right around the corner and we need your help.  The battle to keep the Congress Blue runs directly through Illinois.  We can make a difference here in our own backyard!  The work we do here will have implications for the entire country .  

The 9th CD Dems under the leadership of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky are mobilizing for victory! We will be travelling to nearby swing Illinois Congressional Districts and Illinois Supreme Court Districts to knock doors, making calls from our district into others, and writing postcards to make sure that Democrats up and down the ballot win in November!

Sign up here to join us!

Someone will reach out shortly after you sign up to share specific opportunities to get involved.

Fall & Spring Organizing Academy Applications Open!

This Fall and Spring, we are offering a selective, unpaid organizing academy program focused on training vital political skills in a fast-paced, hands-on environment.  This program gives motivated fellows opportunities to play a direct role in the upcoming 2022 General Election inside and outside of Illinois.  

This program emphasizes the development of core political skills through classroom-style instruction led by political professionals.  Fellows will deploy those skills in real-world settings to help create victory for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. This unpaid fellowship may be eligible for class credit—if so, we will work with interns to secure necessary approval from accredited educational institutions.

This internship will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00PM – 7:30PM at 5025 N Broadway, Chicago IL (3rd Floor), with additional 6 hours of flexible hours per week which can be performed remotely or in person.
