need a job Do you want to make a difference? Cobalt Abortion Fund Attempts To Hire 2-3 More Organizers On West Slope – AnneLandmanBlog.com
Are you looking for a rewarding job that gives you the opportunity to help people and make a big difference in their lives?
Cobalt Advocates is looking for two to three more organizers on the West Slope.
Cobalt operates the Cobalt Abortion Fund, a special abortion fund that helps people cover the costs and manage the logistics of an abortion, such as transportation, housing, and childcare. The Cobalt Abortion Fund is 100% funded by donors and is the only independent fund of its kind in Colorado.
Cobalt’s goal is to ensure that no one has to bear the financial or logistical burden related to abortion.
Cobalt plans to hire two, possibly three, more organizers on the West Slope. The position does not require a degree and they will train everyone, but they are specifically looking for people who have an innate confidence, who value abortion as an option, and are willing to speak publicly about abortion all day, every day. The job involves appearing at street fairs, doing election-time phone banking, turning tables at festivals, and other duties to spread the word about Cobalt and the Abortion Fund. You need to be comfortable working remotely and managing your own hours, although there is the option to share a workspace with another employee if you really want to go to an office. The job can be either part-time or full-time depending on your preference, but the full-time position comes with significant benefits, including health insurance coverage that allows you to add your family inexpensively, as well as dental and eye protection, a generous pension adjustment of 2% paid time off, and 2 Weeks of vacation that you are entitled to immediately.
Since the Supreme Court decision earlier this year ending the constitutional right to abortion after 50 years, Cobalt has seen an increase in the number of people reaching out to her for help. In 2021, Cobalt processed 7,000 requests. So far in 2022, 70,000 inquiries have been received.
Colorado is surrounded by states with “trigger laws” that went into effect shortly after the Dobbs decision ended people’s right to sovereignty over their own bodies. However, Colorado’s Democratic legislature passed legislation earlier this year that protects every Coloradan’s right to reproductive freedom, but trigger laws in surrounding states have greatly increased the number of women seeking abortions in Colorado.
In its decision, the conservative majority of the Supreme Court indicated it would next seek to overturn other cases that have long protected other American autonomy rights, including the right to use contraception and the right to marry who you love. In response, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed legislation protecting people’s right to use contraceptives last July, but so far Senate Republicans have not acted on the legislation.
