Job Description

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is the only organization exclusively committed to winning Democratic majorities and building Democratic power in state legislatures across the country.

State legislatures pass most of the policies that affect Americans’ day-to-day lives, and flipping chambers from red to blue has an outsized impact on governing and public policy. Our Democratic legislatures are truly the last line of defense against Republicans’ extreme policies and a conservative Supreme Court.  The DLCC is committed to building sustainable infrastructure in the states to win legislative seats and legislative chambers.

The DLCC compensates employees competitively and provides a very generous benefits package. We believe in work-life balance and understand that every employee has unique circumstances at home.
