About March On and Future Coalition

Founded in 2017, March On is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization focused on harnessing the grassroots energy of mass mobilizations to create political power. March On supports and provides resources to hundreds of local affiliates and organizers nationwide, mobilizes our network for national campaigns, and partners with progressive organizations on joint initiatives. Since our inception, we have fundamentally shifted the balance of power by marching people to the polls through our monumental March On The Polls Midterm 2018 efforts, by amassing millions of people in the streets during the Women’s Marches of 2017, 2018, and 2019, and, through our Vote With Us campaign during the 2020 elections.

Built by youth activists, for youth activists, Future Coalition is a national network that fosters community and collaboration among youth leaders and youth-led organizations. Young people have the ideas and passion to make incredible change in their local communities, in the country, and in the world. Future Coalition provides these young people with the tools, resources, and support to power their ideas and amplify their impact. For the last two years Future Coalition has coordinated the US Climate Strike Coalition, the coalition of over 500 organizations that collaborate to organize the Climate Strikes in the US. We were behind the September 20, 2019 Climate Strikes that mobilized over 650,000 people in the US. For the 2020 general election and the Georgia special elections, we helped to rally the largest voter turnout in the history of our country.

March On began incubating Future Coalition in June of 2018. After supporting 50 Miles More, one of its original member organizations, March On was uniquely positioned to offer the infrastructure and guidance needed to develop Future Coalition. Over the last few years, MO and FC have found many ways to collaborate through campaigns and programming. While the two organizations are autonomous and have their own individual identities, when it comes to strategy and operations, we share much of the work around administration, communications, digital, fundraising, fiscal projects, and more. We refer to our organizational structure as a “special unicorn” because we have built ourselves to be intergenerational, collaborative, and intersectional in everything we do.

March On and Future Coalition share core beliefs around the power of collaboration and community––centering local, grassroots organizers to effect change. This relationship is at the heart of our family of organizations.

MO/FC is a 501c4 organization, fiscally sponsored by March On Foundation, a 501c3. Incorporated in DC, and based in Colorado administratively, we work 100% remotely (this is especially true as we continue to battle the pandemic.) Our leadership is composed entirely of women and non-binary folx and more than half of our team are women of color. We’re proudly feminist and we embrace creativity and openness. We work hard, and expect the ideal candidate to be as passionate and dedicated as we are about making, building and sustaining grassroots power for progressive change. We’re looking for someone who is excited to be a key part of the operational infrastructure of the organization.

 

COMPENSATION

MO/FC offer competitive compensation, commensurate with experience and in line with industry standards. Expected salary range: $50,000-$60,000. Full-time, non-exempt position.
Our compensation package for full-time employees includes a monthly healthcare subsidy, and access to healthcare plans through United HealthCare.
