The campaigner will help us design and win our tax & budget campaign—our nationwide effort that ensures big companies pay their fair share in taxes, just like the rest of us.

We have talented, passionate advocates—people like you—to make sure they do.

Tax and budget decisions define the type of country we want to live in. Decisions about who pays how much, and where the money goes, say a lot about our national values.

If it’s the latter, than this opportunity is for you.
