Day 69: Quit your Day Job

If you are tired of the same old #Resistance grind of calling MoCs, signing online petitions, resharing political memes on Facebook or writing snarky blog posts, here’s a way you can turn pestering friends to call MoCs and starting online petitions into a full-time job. Or, more glamorously, call it ‘become an activist!’ The founders of Fight for the Future, a mostly online grassroots organizing group that claims credit for maintaining net neutrality rules, are offering grants funding small groups to follow their model in turning a passion cause into a movement. Apparently they will give $15,000 to fund 2-3 person teams (they call A-Teams) for the first month. The vetting process is a little unclear, as is the funding for the following months, so I wouldn’t burn too many bridges at the office on your way out but it’s an interesting project nonetheless.
