360 Campaign Consulting is seeking petitioning staff to join us on an exciting campaign to qualify two ballot initiatives for the November 2020 election. One initiative will use existing money from recreational marijuana sales taxes to fund an expansion of addiction treatment services throughout the state, while the second will decriminalize the controlled use of psilocybin (the psychoactive agent in mushrooms) as a therapeutic method for treating depression, addiction, and other serious medical issues that affect millions of Americans.
Petitioning staff will work in busy public places to educate the public about both issues. They will demonstrate an interest in these issues by collecting signatures from registered Oregon voters stating they wish to vote on the subject in November. There is no fundraising involved in the work. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who seeks to create social change through direct democracy and gain campaign experience.
This position begins ASAP and will end by May first.

- Willingness to work evenings and weekends
