Looking for MORE than a job? Work with Citizens Action Coalition and put your values into action! Earn a living fighting to protect people from the greed of monopoly utility companies!

Citizens Action Coalition is Indiana’s oldest and largest consumer and environmental advocacy organization, with over 40,000 members across Indiana. Since 1974, CAC has been leading the charge to protect ratepayers and advocate for affordable healthcare and a clean environment. We accomplish this through canvassing, lobbying, community organizing and litigation.

Field and Phone Canvassers promote social, economic and environmental justice issues such as:

  • Renewable Energy (wind power, solar power, etc.)
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Fair Utility Rates
  • Affordable Health Care
  • Environmental Quality
  • Corporate Accountability

Job Description:  Participate in grassroots democracy by educating, organizing, and empowering everyday Hoosiers to affect public policy and hold elected/public officials and corporations accountable. Our field canvassers go door-to-door in communities across Indiana. Our phone canvassers call our members on the phone. Both field and phone canvassers educate people about issues; empower people to participate in our campaigns by generating letters, phone calls, and e-mails to public officials; and raise the money necessary to keep us a viable and vital voice for the citizens of Indiana.  

Paid benefits (Full Time only): Health insurance & paid vacations

Added Benefits: Advancement opportunities, wear casual clothes to work, sleep until noon, meet some great people all over Indiana, and have fun working with people you actually like!

Requirements: We do not require any previous experience, and we do have an extensive training program for new canvassers. Canvassing is challenging, but it is also rewarding. Canvassing is not about arguing or convincing anybody of anything.  It’s about finding the people who agree with our work and gaining their support. We’ve been canvassing for over 35 years, so we’ll make sure you have the tools and skills you need to be successful!

  • Willingness to learn
  • Sense of adventure
  • Passion for social justice
